General

Your English-speaking tour driver from Discovery G Tours will welcome you at your hotel or any other place of your convenience in Rome. After driving about 75 minutes north of Rome, we will reach Orvieto.

Orvieto is perched on a plateau of tufo rock (soft volcanic rock) that was once an island in the sea covering the Paglia Valley below. Here, you will have time to explore one of the finest Duomos in Italy, a gem of Gothic architecture and take an hour long tour of the underground city with its winding tunnels and Etruscan artifacts. This tour allows you to explore 3,000 years of history by following the ancient passageways, tunnels, stairs, and hidden rooms. Another important stop is St. Patrick’s Well, built on the orders of Pope Clement VII who sought refuge here during the sacking of Rome. This 203 feet deep well showcases double-spiral staircases for easier access to the water. In Orvieto, you will experience a delightful lunch with delicious local wine.

After exploring this charming town with amazing views, you will head to Civita Bagnoregio, an almost deserted town accessible only by a foot bridge. With only 25-50 inhabitants, it mirrors a ghost town. Here, you can stroll the narrow streets, and marvel at the existence of a place where time stopped several hundred years ago. You will also be able to enjoy a visit to an ancient olive oil press, originally built by the Etruscans from this area. This tour will allow you to explore the unique history of this fascinating area.

Your tour driver will be happy to can suggest some local restaurants in the area for an authentic “Umbrian” lunch.

At the end of the tour we will return to Rome.

This tour length is approximately 9 hours in total and is conducted by an English-speaking tour driver that will not enter sites but drive you around and show you places, pointing out things while explaining what they are, as well as stopping at the places which require a visit and helping you access them.

  • Our guide, Marco, picked the 6 of us up at the apartment we had rented at 8:00. We had an easy drive for about an hour and a half. We arrived at Civita di Bagnoregio first. Marco directed us where to go and gave us plenty of time to enjoy the Civita. A walk down some stairs to the path up to the city. The walk may be difficult for some. After some time walking around and enjoying the local cats and amazing views we walked back and headed to Orvieto. An easy 30 minute drive. Orvieto is a quaint little town with a duomo that is very beautiful. It was €4 per person to go inside. There are lots of shops and places to eat. Marco suggested a little family owned place called Cantina Foresi. We saw the old wine cellar and had some lunch. We really enjoyed the food and the wine. Would definitely recommend it. After lunch we shopped a bit and just wandered the city for a few hours. We headed back to Rome about 4:00. Full day out of Rome but for us it was a nice change. If you have the chance to go, I would highly recommended it. Marco was an exceptional guide and an excellent driver. Ted C
