Umbria Full-Day Tour of Orvieto and Todi

1. Umbria Full-Day Tour of Orvieto and Todi

Explore 2 of Umbria's commune towns, Orvieto and Todi, on a full-day tour. First, journey to Orvieto, located on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tuff. Head to the Duomo, a black and white striped building in a mix of Romanesque and Gothic styles. Go inside to see the bronze doors, rose window, and frescoes of Luca Signorelli. After, walk around the historic center, visiting the Piazza del Popolo, Saint Patrick's Well, Corso Cavour, a variety of churches, and more. You also won't want to miss the underground city full of tunnels, galleries, wells, stairs, quarries, cellars, unexpected passageways, cisterns, and rooms. Continue on to Todi, also home to an impressive Gothic cathedral with a rose window and a Gothic altar. Explore the city center, visiting the Palazzo del Popolo, one of the most ancient communal palaces in Italy, and home to the city's art gallery. Other remarkable palaces in Todi include Palazzo del Capitano, Palazzo dei Priori, and Palazzo Vescovile. Once you have seen both cities, begin your trip back to your hotel.

Our day in Umbria with Maurizio was the highlight of our trip to Italy! We visited Todi, Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoreggio and he took scenic routes throughout the day, stopping at some spectacular spots and commenting very knowledgeably about the area in general -- he is from here. He gave us as much time was we needed/wanted in each place - it was a perfect arrangement. He is a terrific driver (his car is beautiful and comfortable), has a great sense of humor and is sensitive to what his clients are interested in -- he listens. We truly enjoyed his company! HIGHLY recommend!

Wonderful Day Touring

This tour should be on everyone's to do list in Umbria. Both these towns are gorgeous to visit. Maurizio Luna from Le Vie dell Umbria was my driver. He was extremely informative, and courteous throughout the day. Sit back and enjoy the comfortable drive to these places. The countryside is spectacular and Maurizio will ensure you get the best experience on this tour. Fabulous day, that has left me with wonderful memories. Thank you

Outstanding Views

Our guide was very prompt and knowledgeable about the area. He gave us points to walk to and plenty of time. He offered to stop along the road for photos whenever we got excited about the view. At the end, we still had time left to out Day and were offered the opportunity to stop in a third town to look at the pottery there, but we were totally satisfied. It was a lovely outing for an afternoon.
