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.
Another important stop is St. Patrick’s Well. This 203 feet deep well showcases double-spiral staircases for easier access to the water. Experience a delightful lunch with delicious local wine. Your tour driver will be happy to can suggest some local restaurants in the area for an authentic “Umbrian” lunch.
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. Stroll the narrow streets, and marvel at the existence of a place where time stopped several hundred years ago. 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.
At the end of the tour we will return to Rome.
