Riding around less known Umbria

In the middle of Italy, near Tuscany, there is a wonderful region named "the green heart of Italy", a paradise for riders with a lot of intersting cycling itineraries, good food, good nature and wonderful villages. This region has an easy connection, through the Perugia's airport, with New York's airport via Rome. You can find some informations here:
RIDE IN UMBRIA

it could be a good idea for next summer!!

It looks like you're having a wonderful trip.

As far as Umbria, I remember bumping into some Roman ruins just north of Terni. They were perhaps as spectacular as many of the ruins in Rome, and an actual Roman road that you can walk on. There were DEEP ruts in the granite.

Yes all over Umbria there are Roman and Etruscan Ruins. Mostly along Roman's road Flaminia and the Tevere River that flow along the region

An example in the opposite hills to Assisi
