Ancient villages between Todi and the Martani mountains

This bike loop path starts from Todi, one of the most popular and most visited town in Umbria, it is developed over the hills of Todi which are located between the Tiber valley and the Martani mountains.

Technical description:
The route is 52 km long and it’s a medium difficulty path, without  particularly marked slopes: the only two climbs are those which lead to Collazzone and to Todi.
The start is near the Church of Santa Maria della Consolazione, just outside the city center of Todi.
The path goes down on the plains along the entire perimeter of the city towards Ponte Rio, in the north, in one of the few stretches with traffic.
In Ponte Rio you will cross the E45 route with an underpass and you keep up going north taking the road that leads to Pantalla. Along the way be sure to notice the west profile of Monte Castello di Vibio, a village famous for the presence of the smallest theater in the world.
After 22 km you leave the road towards Collepepe, here begins the climb (6 Km) to Collazzone, a village located on the top of a hill surrounded by woods, oaks and olive trees which offers a beautiful view of the Martani Mountains and the Tiber Valley.
Then you head south towards San Terenziano and the small village of Frontignano, before beginning a steep and winding slope that goes back to Ponte Rio.
Here you take the road up to Todi - the same road previously done downhill - coming to the city walls.
