Pedaling along the old railway and the Nera Greenway


€320 per person

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

The itinerary develops in the southern area of ​​Umbria, between Spoleto and the Valnerina. The first day we will have to face the pass that leads to the Caprareccia tunnel: it is about 6 kilometers but with very gentle slopes, since in the past it was crossed by the train. On the second day there are no demanding climbs, but mostly ups and downs that must be tackled with the right gears. On the second day, in any case, the route tends mainly to go down.

Overall, the itinerary can be considered medium-easy and a person in good health and active will be able to tackle it without difficulty, also because the mileage is short. However, it would be ideal to train in the period before the holiday, especially to get used to being in the saddle for several hours and avoid pain and aches.
