A wealth of sport activities around Monticelli
For those of you who love sports, there are many interesting opportunities around Monticelli.
For golfers we have at only 8 km distance the Golf Court of Perugia which has 18 holes. Another not too distant Golf Court is the beautiful, but a bit hilly golf course of Castello Antognolla which is at about 40 minutes by car.
Biking around Monticelli is possible and relatively easy. However, one needs a road-bike or a mountain bike. One itinerary, which starts at 200 meters from Monticelli, follows the course of a river and takes you into a beautiful valley covered with trees and full of historic buildings. The other takes you around Lake Trasimeno and starts a bit farther away.
If you like to walk around or doing your daily footing there are several lovely unpaved country roads which start right at Monticelli. And for those who want to walk or jog along more distant paths and in different valleys, just ask the reception and you will get the necessary information.
Rafting is possible in the Sibillini Mountains, about an hour away from Monticelli, where we have a nice rafting area along – Le Gole di Biselli – an interesting site to visit for adults and children. And you can combine this adventure with the visit of Norcia, famous as the birth place of Saint Benedict and famous also for its superb regional products: truffle, salami, ham, cheese and lentils.
