Whether it’s by bike or on foot, Umbria allows you to fully enjoy the landscape, scents, and the peace and quiet of the countryside. You can also visit old walled cities with their steep streets, that still look like they could be from Middle Ages. Francis of Assisi left its marks in Umbria in the 12th century. There are numerous monasteries and abbeys that were built in that time. Umbria has many tangible memories from that period, to the pride of many Italians. That could be the reason why so many lovely walking and cycling routes have been mapped out in Umbria.
