Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio
DAY TRIP TO THE CORE OF UMBRIA
Always from Rome, you just feel like going off the beaten path! This is the tour for you! Just trust us as words will not do justice! Orvieto and the magic of Civita
PICK UP TIME Suggested 7:30 am so that we will beat the traffic out of the city and we will back right on time before the traffic gets back in (it is flexible then you decide whenever during the day).
ORVIETO After around 1 hour and 30-minutes’ drive you will reach this enchanting town located on a volcanic hill in the Umbria Region. I can’t speak enough about it but just to give you a little insight, in Orvieto you have one of the most amazing Domes of Italy (its frescoes inside, mainly Signorelli’s, are just as top-notch as the Vatican ones), several Etruscan Museums, given its ancient origin, and spectacular views! You will be able to spend in Orvieto around 1.5 hours!
CIVITA DI BAGNOREGIO You will reach Civita after a 30-minutes’ drive from Orvieto. The town is noted for its striking position atop a plateau of friable volcanic tuff overlooking the Tiber river valley, in constant danger of destruction as its edges fall off, leaving the buildings built on the plate to crumble. Well, the description does not say a lot about the beauty of this place. I cannot add anything else also because you can Google it, see pics of it, but until you’ve see it in person you can’t get it! So just come and be inspired! You need to be fit to reach the top of it.
TIME FOR LUNCH If you decide to follow this itinerary then after 1-hour of free time we leave Civita, then this will fit in and it would be the most memorable lunch of your entire vacations! Leaving Civita behind and drive through an immaculate countryside after about an hour later you will reach this spectacular restaurant that generally opens only for us on request! In the middle of nowhere with the best food ever.
Ride back to Rome, aiming at arriving by 04:30 pm
