Degree of difficulty
 
  medium-easy
This leg of the journey goes from Monteluco to Trevi and, after the effort of recent days, is decidedly easier: some 30 kilometres with a modest 350 metre total climb. The only real ascent of the day is the final one to get to the top of Trevi, but it neither long nor especially steep. Leave Monteluco and enjoy 7 kilometres of downhill to get back to the centre of Spoleto and then, via a series of connecting roads, to the main Spoleto-Assisi cycle route.
The route offers many kilometres of quiet and peaceful cycling far from traffic and surrounded by lovely views of the Valley of Umbria, with the towns of Poreta, Pissignano and Montefalco watching over you in the distance. It ends when you reach the feet of Trevi, the start of the day’s climb which goes from Bovara all the way into the heart of the historical centre of town.
It is not a hard climb and you will be surrounded by lovely olive groves and some truly magnificent views. Before you start the ascent you might want to make a small detour to see the ages-old Fonti di Clitunno water springs, a peaceful and quite place to take a break. Once you have reached Trevi you will be regaled with splendid panoramic views, including one of Assisi, tomorrow’s destination, in the distance.    
What you should know before departure
Sources
There are sources of water at Monteluco, where you will be able to get a supply of water for the leg of the journey, Spoleto e Bovara. The leg of the journey is not long but almost entirely under the sun, so in the summer we advise you to travel with two water bottles or a water reservoir.
Intermediate stages
After the arduous efforts of the past few days, today’s ride is relatively easy. There are no real stops along the way but before you head upwards on the last stretch to Trevi, you might enjoy a detour to the Fonti di Clitunno springs, a peaceful place to relax for a while.
Suggestions
It is not a hard ride today so all we can suggest is that you enjoy the views and leave yourself a bit of energy to conquer the ascent at the end of the day. If you are travelling the Southern Way in spring or autumn, you will notice a wide range of temperatures, so it’s a good idea to dress in layers, donning a thicker jacket on the first downhill stretch so that you don’t catch cold right at the beginning. Come sempre non dimenticate di portare con voi una piccola scorta di cibo (frutta, frutta secca, cioccolata, barrette energetiche, sali minerali se molto caldo).
