From Rome: Orvieto & Civita Bagnoregio Coach Tour

1. From Rome: Orvieto & Civita Bagnoregio Coach Tour

First, get picked up from your hotel in central Rome or head to the meeting point in the city center. Board the coach and depart at 8 AM, setting off towards the ancient city of Bagnoregio in the Province of Viterbo in central Italy.  When you arrive, take a stroll around Civita di Bagnoregio which was founded by Etruscans more than 2,500 years ago. The town is noted for its striking position on top of a plateau between the two valleys called Fossato del Rio Torbido and Fossato del Rio Chiaro. Find out about how the settlement is also known as the 'dying town' and was historically accessed by a single road that led from the Tiber valley to Lake Bolsena.  Then, stop for a delicious lunch at a local Italian restaurant. In the afternoon, continue the tour to Orvieto, another small town of Etruscan origins where you can admire the magnificent 14th-century cathedral, a masterpiece of gothic architecture. Visit the remarkable Pozzo di San Patrizio, a historic well that was built by architect-engineer Antonio da Sangallo the Younger of Florence in the 16th Century.  Finally, return to Rome where you will be dropped off at the meeting point in the city center.

Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoregio Skip-The-Line with Lunch

3. Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoregio Skip-The-Line with Lunch

From Rome, the tour will include stops to visit the towns of Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoreggio. Explore these towns at your own pace, or choose to employ the services of a private locally-licensed tour guide, at an additional cost. Orvieto is a town in the region Umbria situated on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tuff. The site of the city rises above the almost vertical faces of tuff cliffs that are completed by defensive walls built of the same stone called Tufa. Orvieto was built originally in the Etruscan era, and it kept growing throughout the ages. It now has the looks of a medieval small town, but it’s still possible to understand its entire history by visiting the town’s most important sites. Among the important sites to visit in Orvieto is the cathedral, one of the most magnificent you’ll ever see. Civita di Bagnoreggio is a small town located atop a plateau of friable volcanic tuff. It was founded during the Etruscan era, and during the centuries it never grew much in width, always remaining incredibly small. Nowadays, the town has a limited number of inhabitants, and it was known as a dying town before tourism started to head in its direction during the last few years. During the tour, you’ll have lunch in a typical farmhouse restaurant and visit the main sites of each town. Please consider that spending a long time in each of the towns will mean that you’ll be able to have shorter visits in the other towns. At the end of the tour, the driver will take you back to your accommodation in Rome. The tour will be a total of 10-hours from pickup to drop-off.
