Cross Italy biking along the Sun Route: 1,224,10 miles of which about 12.5 in the Trasimeno section in Umbria and take your time to practice your favorite sport and visit the surroundings!
The Sun Route is part of Eurovelo 7. Eurovelo is the network of European bicycle routes co-funded by the European Union and developed by the ECF (European Cyclists’ Federation). Eurovelo 7 is one of the longest routes in this network and one of the most beautiful from a naturalistic point of view.
In Italy it enters Val Pusteria (Trentino Alto-Adige) crossing the peninsula for 1,970 km to Pozzallo in Sicily to continue to Malta.The stretch in Umbria is short – just over 40 km – and undemanding but excellent for testing yourself on itineraries that are not entirely flat. The stretch that affects the territory of Trasimeno winds on existing roads with low traffic intensity in the green countryside between Chiusi Scalo and Fabro Scalo, on dirt roads gravel between cultivated fields and hilly woods (30% asphalt 6.2 km; 70% dirt 14 km), crossing the Municipality of Città della Pieve where we suggest staying and that is well worth a visit.
In the surroundings, we also recommend a stop at the village of Salci.
