Orvieto + Civita Di Bagnoregio from Assisi

  • DRIVING GUIDED TOUR FROM ASSISI – 8h

We offer you a private customized tour of the most spectacular monuments and sights of Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio with our comfortable and air conditioned Sedan/Van departing from your hotel in Assisi. You will have a fluent English speaking driver, very knowledgeable who will guide you through the discovery of these two incredible towns, reaching the main streets and squares, hopping on and off the car as much as you want.

Driving through the comfortable car we will reach the charming town of Orvieto in the region of Umbria. Built on top of a flat rock of volcanic origin, Orvieto belonged to the “Dodecapolis”, 12 main cities at the time of the Etruscans and still today we have clear evidence of such a great civilization thanks to the Etruscan museum. The town is famous to have one of the best gothic cathedrals of Italy with its decorated façade, frescoes and the chapel of the Bolsena miracle.

We will reach the historical centre, see the fortress, the Well of St. Patrick, the Duomo and stroll around the shopping area.

You can decide to go for the ‘underground tour of Orvieto’ to get in touch with the mysterious and fascinating echoes of Etruscan, Medieval and Renaissance heritages, or visit the cathedral, with its beautiful façade (one of the best decorated in the world) and Luca Signorelli’s work where Michelangelo got his inspiration and lesson to paint the Sistine Chapel.

You will have free time for lunch. If you need suggestions, ask us!

South west of Orvieto is located Civita di Bagnoregio, our next stop. After parking the car, you will walk through the bridge (shuttle buses also availale) towards the small village of Civita, a unique town in the world, located on top of a hill, also called the “Dying town” because of the erosion which is slowly making it collapse and the only way to reach it is a steep footbridge. Only 30/40 people live in this town throughout the year. We will reach the main square, visit an Etruscan wall, the main church and stroll around the streets and scenic viewpoints of the town.

Head back to Assisi and finish your tour at hotel.
