Italy 2015 – Umbria [ July 5 – 13 ]


After the success of my 2014 ride in gorgeous Umbria, I decided to return in July of 2015 a time of year when the wild flowers bloom in ‘Castelluccio di Norcia’, an amazing mountain plateau suspended at the head of the spectacular Valnerina valley – a sight definitely not to be missed. It is also the last week of the “Festival dei Due Monde” which takes place in Spoleto, a 15mn drive from our base. During two weeks this jewel of a town with its preserved street and houses, entertains lovers of Ballet and Modern dance, Classical Music, Jazz, Opera, Drama, Cinema and Visual Arts. The closing night concert (July 12) which always takes place in the piazza in front of the cathedral is a very festive evening indeed !
