Lazio by gravel bike

What are the best gravel bike routes in Lazio?

Lazio is one of those regions that you can’t imagine exploring by bike, let alone gravel. This happens for several reasons: in the first place because when you think of Lazio you imagine Rome and therefore chaos, traffic and urban streets, certainly not a quiet dirt road surrounded by nature. Instead, already after a few kilometers outside the city, one realizes that Lazio is a region ready to positively amaze those who want to explore it by gravel bike.

Lazio by gravel bike

To select the best gravel itineraries in Lazio, we have taken into consideration some parameters such as compatibility with a 2 to 14 day holiday, the accessibility of the itinerary by means of transport and the presence of cycle tourism services in the surrounding area.

The best gravel routes for Lazio are:

  • Trail degli Etruschi
  • Tiber cycle way (Regina Ciclarum)
  • Grand Tour of Lazio in gravel
  • Via Francigena on gravel
  • Via di Francesco in Gravel

1. Trail degli Etruschi on gravel

The Via degli Etruschi is an itinerary that runs through Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. In particular, from the border of Tuscany and up to the Vatican city in Rome, you travel along the incredible consular roads still intact for two thousand years, white roads and beautiful and perfectly maintained cycle paths.

Characteristics and information on Lazio in gravel

The philosophy of gravel travel has only spread in Italy for a few years and therefore many regions have not yet become famous enough because they have not been able to demonstrate how ready they are to become destinations for a gravel travel.

In our opinion, Lazio is one of them. Despite a dense network of white roads, country lanes and cycle paths and the presence of several very well structured itineraries such as the Via Francigena, the Via degli Etruschi and the Via di Francesco, this region is struggling to become a famous cycling destination.

When is the best time to do Lazio gravel?

The weather in Lazio is not very different from that of the other regions of central Italy, therefore the same rules apply as in the other regions: it is better to avoid the cold winter months and the too hot summer months, otherwise it is always the right time to pedal in Lazio on gravel. An always valid advice is to check the weather reports and those on traffic safety to avoid taking unnecessary risks or incurring penalties.
