Italian Bike Tour: Cycling through the Lazio Countryside

A guided cycling trip through the Lazio countryside is a wonderful way to fully appreciate the splendour of this part of the world. Arrive at the agriturismo just in time for an aperitivo then it's off to medieval Orvieto for a walking tour before dining on typical Umbrian fare. The next days will be spent tracking the Etruscans, Romans, and Lombards from a bicycle seat past fields of wildflowers and gorges hiding natural hot springs. Get in touch with your inner child at the Park of Monsters, an Italian mannerist garden in Bomarzo. Remember that, no matter where you go on this journey, unspoilt beauty surrounds you. If this Alto Lazio bike tour sounds appealing, you may also like to check out our bike tour from Orvieto to Argentario and the rest of our Italian cycling tours.
