Francisco's Umbria bike tour a must on your list! His family and Francisco were amazing hosts and the bike ride was one small piece of the day! They shared their homes, life, and love for Umbria with us. Thank you for a true experience of the beautiful country!

This experience was so much more than a bike tour. It was an amazing culture experience. Francesco and his parent were warm and welcoming. They invited us into their home and served us a great breakfast. Maria was the typical Italian mother who was so willing to share her food and hospitality and wasn't happy until we had eaten until...

I contacted Francesco about a bike ride through Umbria with 7 of my friends of varying fitness levels. He chose a bike route that was stunning and fun as well as within the ability of my group. In addition to a fabulous bike ride, we also got to experience Francesco's wonderful, welcoming family. Before the ride even began we went... More

My wife and I, along with our two daughters ages 7 and 9 hired Francesco for a half-day bike tour. What we got was so much more! Francesco was very thorough in making sure we were safe and comfortable. As requested, he took us on a easy bike ride through a beautiful valley - stopping along the way for the... More

What an amazing day we have just had. Luca and Renata are such warm , welcoming people who we felt instantly comfortable with. One of us had virtually no motorbike experience but with Luca's confident assesment that all would be fine...we both rented bikes-and boy were we happy that we did! The feeling of freedom on the bike,the beautiful smells... More

I contacted Francesco about a family bike tour, but since our kids were so small (between 1 and 5) he advised that a bike tour would not be so safe for them. Instead he offered to do a 'farm tour' and lunch. We met at his parents house, where his mom had made us a 'small' breakfast of what appeared... More

This is a must do for anyone visiting the Umbrian valley. Francesco was a superb bike guide, bringing us on a 30 kilometer bike tour using roads that were both leisurely and beautiful. Francesco's family was incredibly welcoming as well. His mother made us a breakfast of cakes and homemade jams, as well an amazing lunch that will never be... More

Biking with Francesco gives you great exercise, and an up-close feel for the Umbrian countryside but most importantly an opportunity to hang out with warm Italian people. Francesco is a great guide and will tailor your trip to your wants and needs. We traveled on flat bike trails and barely-driven roads with beautiful vistas of Umbrian hills all around us.... More

You will not be disappointed. We had an amazing day with Francesco and his wonderful warm family. We had a mixed age group with a 20 year old, 50's, 60's and 70's. Francesco accommodated our group and was professional and courteous. The ride was beautiful and Francesco pointed out the highlights of the area. The roads were flat and easy... More

Highly recommend Francesco. Couldn't have been more helpful. Dropped off my rented road bike at my hotel and picked it up afterwards. Always at the end of his mobile or emails for any questions before I flew out and during my stay. Great way to explore Umbria and Assisi.
