Enjoy a private excursion to Orvieto and Civita Bagnoregio, two of Italy’s most beautiful Umbrian towns. The full-day trip from Rome takes in an exquisite countryside of olive groves and vineyards, and stunning hills topped by medieval villages.
What to Expect
This 10-hour tour from Rome takes you out to the lovely Umbrian countryside to two of Italy’s most beautiful Etruscan towns.
You will be greeted at your hotel in Rome and will make your way through groves of olive trees and lines of vineyards. Take in the gorgeous Umbrian views as you head for Orvieto, where you will spend the morning sightseeing.
Known for its vast countryside, olives, and wine, Orvieto was an important city during the Etruscan era and even the Pope resided there during the 11th-Century.
Its narrow streets and ancient houses are delightfully rustic, but the monumental Cathedral boasts a fanciful façade of travertine and basalt, and an impressive interior with frescoes.
After a stop for lunch, continue to the hilltop village of Civita Bagnoregio. Founded by the Etruscans more than 2,500 years ago, today the population varies from about 12 people in winter to over 100 in the summer.
It perches on a plateau overlooking the River Tiber and its crumbling architecture gives it a lovely aspect. You will explore the Church of Saint Donato, the ivy-clad houses of the narrow streets and the surrounding area, before you are returned to your hotel in Rome.
