From Cagli to Cantiano, between water sources and ancient Roman buildings

Cycling on the old SS Flaminia street, at the border of Umbria and Marche

A beautiful bike ride that starts from the town of Cagli (PU) and takes the old road SS Flaminia - that connects Rome to the Adriatic coast - up to Cantiano, few kilometers away from the border of Umbria and Marche. The path is steeped in history and nature, on a quiet street, between water sources and ancient Roman buildings.
Along this path of 10 km long, there is a water source and a Roman bridge still working.
You get to Cantiano, a village at the foot of the Mount Catria (1701 m) - one of the main peaks of the Umbria-Marche Apennines - with its extended and centenary beech trees’ bushes.

Technical description:
The path starts from Cagli and it goes on the old part of the Via Flaminia. You proceed as you were to take the motorway to Rome, but passed the underpass, you take the road that runs alongside the motorway, where the traffic is very low, arriving in Cantiano.

Technical advice:
This path does not require a particular clothing. There is the chance to find water along the way. It is recommended to always wear a helmet, compulsory for children.
