La Gioia is at the center of European culture. You can reach the churches, monasteries and palaces of Spoleto, Todi, Assisi, Spello, Perugia, Norcia and Orvieto within 20 to 90 minutes. But also other, lesser-known places have treasures worth discovering!
We will gladly organize individual guided tours with first-class guides for you.
HIKING, BIKING AND TREKKING
Discover the mountain-world of the Monti Sibillini with the Piano Grande, the highest plateau in Europe. You can hike through endless olive groves and jog along the canals of the Valle Umbra. La Gioia is a starting point for many shorter, lovely country walks.
We can offer the use of our 2 mountain bikes, but for real bikers, we recommend bringing your own.
