The tour will include stops to visit the towns of:
- Civita di Bagnoregio
Free Wine Tasting included!
is a town of the region Umbria, situated on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tuff. The site of the city rises above the almost-vertical faces of tuff cliffs that are completed by defensive walls built of the same stone called Tufa. Orvieto was built originally in the Etruscan era, and it kept growing throughout the ages. It now has the looks of a medieval small town, but its still possible to understand its entire history by visiting the towns most important sites. Among the important sites to visit in Orvieto is the Duomo, one of the most magnificent youll ever see.
Civita di Bagnoregio:
is a very small town located atop a plateau of friable volcanic tuff. It was founded during the Etruscan era, and during the centuries it never grew much in width, always remaining incredibly small. Nowadays the town has a very limited number of inhabitants, and it was known as a dying town before tourism started to head in its direction during the last few years.
During the tour youll be allowed time for lunch (your expense) in a very tipical farmhouse restaurant and of course to visit the main sites of each town. Please consider that spending a long time in each of the towns will mean that youll be able to have shorter visits in the other towns.
At the end of the tour, sit back, relax and enjoy your 2 hour drive back to your hotel in Rome. The duration of your tour is about 10 hours and you can expect to be back at your hotel around 6:00pm, depending on local traffic.
