It is the ring of Trasimeno and Monte Peglia. The route crosses in sequence the historical centers of Castiglion del Lago, Passignano sul Trasimeno, Marsciano, San Venanzo, Orvieto, Castel Viscardo, Ficulle, Monteleone di Orvieto, Città della Pieve, and many small minor towns. The blue in the green heart of Italy is the claim of this ring that allows you to discover two little publicized aspects of this region: its great lake, that of the battle of Hannibal, appreciated and praised by travelers of the Grand Tour, and a mountain characterized by the presence of lush vegetation up to the top. Another pearl of this ring is the crossing of Orvieto with direct access, from via Maitani, to the magnificent Duomo. An unforgettable view and an opportunity to appreciate the wonderful works of art that it contains inside. The route is partly easy and partly challenging, but divided into stages is accessible to anyone. TOT. 203 Km - Diff. 2872 Mt
