Our hiking excursions take place in the wonderful countryside surrounding Todi and they are guided by a licensed hiking guide.
A half day of trekking in the beautiful countryside around Todi, discovering the ancient ruins of the Roman road “Via Amerina”.
The Via Amerina connected Rome to the Adriatic coast before the via Flaminia was built. The construction of the via Flaminia, more important and with a better quality surface, brought about the rapid decline of the via Amerina, which was no longer used for several centuries. Following the fall of the Roman Empire and the conquest of the Duchy of Spoleto by the Lombards, and the consequent occupancy of the via Flaminia, the via Amerina became once again the only passable means of communication between Roma and Ravenna, which was at the time the capital of the Byzantine Empire, and thus acquired renewed importance and vitality.
1 day in a olive grove to learn about olive trees cultivation and olive picking.
In growing olives, Umbria has the very special climatic conditions and soil composition and chemistry that allows a deeper root penetration with respect to other zones across the same latitude. This allows for a slow maturation of the fruit and, for this reason, Umbrian oil is one of the best in Italy. The gathering of the olives happens before the fruit is fully mature and traditional harvesting methods called, brucatura (manual collection with a rake), are used across the region. The olives are left in boxes only for a short time to maintain the freshness and integrity of the fruit until it reaches the oil press.
In collaboration with certified hiking/bike guides we organize bike tours in the area of Assisi, Spello, Bevagna and Montefalco to observe the beautiful landscape from another point of view.
