Tours ready for Take-Off
Passione a Pedali has developed four day tours (duration variable from 3 up till 11 hours) that will show you some of the highlights of the Tuscia region. All our tours are made to offer a full experience showing you the area but also letting you taste local products. Even a short tour is a trip in the culture and the history of Tuscia. The difficulty level varies, but since we also have e-bikes available, the tours are doable for almost everyone. You would like to enjoy a shorter ride? Check out or Viterbo or Castel d’Asso tour. You prefer to push yourself a little bit further than check out the longer tours to either Villa Lante or Bagnoregio.
Use your own bike during our tours. Maybe you have brought your on bike from your country to here, but you want a guide to help you discover the area better. Just to make sure that your bike is fit for the tour you would like to join, please contact our team.
