Wine and bike

The bike tour start from Montefalco, famous both for its excellent Sagrantino wines (a really strong red wine!)and its wonderful hilltop position. It boasts a number of interesting buildings, including: the Church of St. Francis, currently a Museum,  the Art Gallery, with works by Francesco Melanzio, Antoniazzo Romano and the Umbrian School from the 14th to the 18th centuries. 

Its wonderful position overlooking the central part of the region has earned it the name of “the Balcony of Umbria”.

The surrounding area is  a special place to cycle around, with gravel and secondary roads, vineyards and wineries everywhere. During the tour stop at the winerie for wine tasting (of course!!)
