FROM SPOLETO TO THE MARMORE WATERFALL

Pedaling along the old railway and the Nera Greenway

FROM SPOLETO TO THE MARMORE WATERFALL

€150 per person

COD. 90 / Pedaling along the old railway and the Nera Greenway

A three-day proposal in one of the most beautiful areas of Umbria, which combines the beauty of Spoleto and villages such as Sant’Anatolia, Scheggino, Ferentillo and Arrone, with the unspoiled nature of Valnerina, before ending in front of the wonderful show of the Marmore waterfall. You will cycle along the evocative route of the former Spoleto-Norcia railway, in the stretch that goes from Spoleto to Sant’Anatolia di Narco, the richest route of viaducts and tunnels, and then along the stretch of Greenway that runs along the Nera and that will take you to waterfalls always far from traffic.

The itinerary develops in the South of Umbria, between Spoleto and Valnerina. The first day will be to face the pass that leads to the tunnel of Caprareccia: it is about 6 kilometers but with very gentle slopes, seen that in the past was traveled by train. The second day there are no difficult ascents, but more than anything else ups and downs that must be addressed with the right relationships. On the second day, in any case, the route mainly tends to go down.

Overall, the itinerary can be considered medium-easy and an active person with good health can face it without difficulty, also because the mileages are short. It would be ideal to train in the period before the holiday, especially to get used to staying in the saddle several hours and avoid pain and soreness.
