Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoregio Private Tour from Rome

3. Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoregio Private Tour from Rome

Escape the hustle and bustle of Rome for a day and tour the lovely small towns of the Etruscan area north of the Eternal City. Traveling by private Mercedes minivan, your first port of call is Orvieto, built on top of a plateau of tufa stone, half-way between Rome and Florence. Boasting bags of charm, and one of Italy's most beautiful gothic cathedrals, admire the façade of this historic monument, completely decorated with mosaics. Orvieto is also known for its white wine and outstanding foods and olive oil, and a stop at a country-style restaurant will introduce you to some of these taste sensations. Continue to Civita di Bagnoregio, sitting on a plateau of tufo stone just like Orvieto. The town can only be reached by a footbridge, and the plateau is slowly deteriorating, so that the town might not be there for much longer. You can also visit a winery to sample superb Umbrian wines, exemplified by the hillside towns of Orvieto and Assisi.

Day trip from Rome to Assisi and Orvieto - 10 hours

4. Day trip from Rome to Assisi and Orvieto - 10 hours

Your full-day excursion to Assisi and Orvieto begins when you’re met at your hotel in Rome and head out of the city on a drive through north Lazio and Umbria. Along the way you’ll admire the landscapes that change from the rolling hills of Tuscia to the forested mountains of Umbria, known as the green heart of Italy. Your first stop is Assisi, the city of St. Francis that was built from local stone. Despite the disastrous earthquake that devastated it years ago, Assisi still appears to be a perfectly preserved medieval Umbrian town, and one of the most charming. Experience the enchantment on a walk through its streets and feel the mystical atmosphere unique to this place. Visit the major churches and enjoy lunch at a spot favored by locals. From Assisi you’ll drive past Perugia towards Deruta, known as the city of ceramics. It’s possible to stop here to browse some of the shops offering local artistic products. When you reach Orvieto you’ll visit the famous Gothic cathedral and a typical wine cellar dug out of the tufo stone underneath the buildings. Orvieto is built on top of a plateau of tufa stone, which also provided the raw material for the town's buildings, including the massive Duomo. Orvieto's cathedral, the Duomo, is considered one of the most beautiful in Italy and its façade, entirely decorated by a gold mosaic, is impressive!

A fabulous and memorable day, made possible by the polite, informative and professional team from Bravo tours; Gianluca, the charming & distinguished driver, Paola, the warm & friendly guide and the passionate, vivacious Marika. We were collected from our hotel in Rome and given fascinating insights of the towns and scenery along the way. We stopped off enroute for a perfect coffee and taste of the local speciality, Ciauscolo (Salami Spread) The Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli was our first jaw-dropping, eye-popping stop. Marika joined us in Assisi with her in-depth, heartfelt knowledge of the history of St Clare and St Francis. Walking us through the narrow streets, keeping us totally engaged. The Basilica of Orvieto, took our breath away with it sheer size, gothic architecture and overwhelming beauty. My 83 year old mothers dream was to go to Assisi and today her dream became a reality that far exceeded her expectations, grateful to the amazing team. THANK YOU!

Mauro was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating. Because it was just our party, he was able to make personalized adjustments to the schedule to make the day ours (push back the start time, detour for coffee and breakfast before hitting the road, adjusting the Orvieto itinerary to include the well). He was kind and patient in every regard, and provided above and beyond assistance at multiple points throughout the day. Despite the somewhat unseasonably chill and rainy weather, these 2 cities were each beautiful and unique, and well worth the visit. Having Mauro as a facilitator and guide was a great enhancement, allowing us to focus on the experience rather than the logistics. Great day!

It was an amazing day!! The team formed by the driver Roberto, the friendly guide Paola, the local guide Sandra and especially Claudio, our Portuguese translator with his patience and attention to us. All very competent. Everything was very organized and punctual, from the hotel pickup to the “technical” stops during the trip. The visits to the churches were made in a very well-prepared itinerary, alternating walks through the little streets of Assisi and lunch. The church of Orvieto is simply wonderful!!! The information we received from the team was useful and very interesting.

Wonderful experience

What a wonderful day we had. Matea was our guide. His English was excellent and his knowledge was impressive and he shared many interesting facts with us. Matea ensured all of our needs were taken care of. We were able to have a leisurely tour which suited us perfectly. The van was extremely comfortable and our group of 6 had plenty of room. We would highly recommend Get Your Guide and Matea.

Had a wonderful time with Mauro our guide. Very knowledgeable and pleasant.
