We have few bikes for our guests, one from my daughter Stella!
We like to go biking in Cetona at the main Piazzetta. kids can have fun biking while we have a nice aperitivo. The same is in Chiusi high city at the Duomo.
Biking in Umbria and Tuscany ideas :
- THE LAKE TRASIMENO TOUR
Have a look of some of those proposals: http://www.lagotrasimeno.co.uk/pg.itinerari.lista.php?id=2&lang=en
There are 25 itineraries to choose! We love the 3 lakes tour and the ring of lake Trasimeno.

At the touristic office in Citta’ della Pive they provide bikes maps and the bike bus schedule, to reach our villages of Tuscany and Umbria by bus with your bike. This service is available only on summer.
A JOURNEY ALONG THE SENTIERO DELLA BONIFICA
The bicycle ride along the Canale Maestro della Chiana is a journey through time and nature: you can pedal right through the heart of the Etruscan world, across a myriad of waterways, in a land that has been shaped by the strength of nature and by the hands of man.
