Activity details

PICK UP TIME Suggested 7:30 am to avoid big crowds at the port especially during the first part of the morning (as always this is flexible and can you decide when). Back to the port at 4:30 pm (with plenty of time not to miss the ship)

ORVIETO After about a one hour and 30-minute drive you will reach this enchanting town located on a volcanic hill in the Umbria Region. Just to give you an idea, in Orvieto, you have one of the most amazing Domes in Italy (its frescos inside, mainly Signorelli’s, are just as top-notch as the Vatican’s), several Etruscan Museums and of course, spectacular views! You will be able to spend about 1.5 hours in Orvieto!

CIVITA DI BAGNOREGIO You will reach Civita after a 30-minute drive from Orvieto. The town is noted for its striking position atop a plateau of friable volcanic tuff overlooking the Tiber river valley, which is 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, Of course, you can Google it and simply see pics of it, however until you see it in person, you can’t fully grasp its jaw-dropping beauty! So just come and be inspired! You need to be fit to reach the top!
