Former Spoleto Norcia Railway Route

Travel through a 30 km long path immersed in the green landscape on foot or by bicycle

Former Spoleto Norcia Railway Route

A path of over 50 km that winds through the hills of Umbria and connects the city of Spoleto to Norcia. Once a rail route, it has now become a cycle and pedestrian route for all lovers of mountain biking and trekking.

The railway operations were stopped in 1926 due to serious damage during the Second World War and were restored from the end of 1945 until 1968 when the operations were permanently discontinued.

In 2014, after various operations for restoration of the damaged sections, the new railway route was inaugurated and transformed into a biking and walking path for a total of 34 km out of 51 km. The inauguration took place on 19 April 2014, in the presence of the President of Umbria Region and regional Mayors.
