One of the most unforgettable bike tours of Etruria from Orvieto to Civita di Bagnoregio.
A mixed route with some challenging climbs but easily covered by ebike.
From the heart of Orvieto we reach the Badia, Abbey of SS. Severo and Martirio of the 6th century, through extraordinary views.
Then you reach the ancient Castel Rubello theater of ancient medieval battles and continue through vineyards, farmhouses and olive groves up to the road that reaches Civita di Bagnoregio: a breathtaking view.
The small village perched on a cliff can be visited only on foot: leave your bike at the gates of the center and take a dip in the past: alleys, squares, views and unparalleled views. The Cathedral of San Donato is worth a visit. The "dying city" is a pearl in the valley of the Calanchi subject to erosion and landslides.
Several directors have set their films here but the title that best honors this village is that of the film by Haiyao Miyazaki: Laputa, the Castle in the Sky.
On the way back to Orvieto, rich tasting of wines and typical products of the territory.
