Their English-speaking Tour driver from Discovery G Tours will welcome them at their hotel in Rome at around 10.00am
After driving about 75 minutes north of Rome, they 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, they 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, they can choose to have a quick lunch before heading to Civita Bagnoregio, an almost deserted town accessible only by a foot bridge.
With only 25-50 inhabitants, it mirrors a ghost town. Here, they can stroll the narrow streets, and marvel at the existence of a place where time stopped several
hundred years ago. They 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. In order to accommodate your request we will offer all day (12 hour) availability
private luxury vehicle and private driver so that they will have plenty of time to appreciate the day and enjoy their dinner that evening.
At the end of this amazing trip, they’ll return to their requested location in Rome at approximately 10pm
This tour length is approximately 12 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.
