1. Private Tour of Lazio and Umbria Regional Gems
Get picked up from your accommodation in Tarquinia, Civitavecchia, Montalto di Castro, or Tuscania and travel 35 minutes by car to reach Civita di Bagnoregio. See firsthand why Civita is known as the dying city as its foundations slowly crumble and fall into the spectacular Valle dei Calanchi below. Knowing that this ancient city is soon to disappear – and that nothing can be done to prevent it – makes your visit all the more special. Check out the 2,500 year old Romanesque Arch built by the Etruscans 2,500 years ago and the facade of the Renaissance Palace that remains after the rest collapsed into the canyon. Visit the largest piazza where what’s left of the town population socializes. Afterwards transfer to Orvieto. Go on a walking tour and explore the town's impressive Duomo. Then head to the incredible Orvieto underground for a guided excursion through the remains of an ancient mill, medieval ruins, and other evidence of everyday life from past civilizations. Continue on to Montefiascone on Bolsena Lake. Tour the historically significant Rocca dei Papi, perched on the highest point of the Montefiascone hill. Learn why it was chosen as a key seat of papal power during the pope's exile in Avignon in the 14th century. Take in a breathtaking view of Bolsena Lake before getting transferred back to your accommodation.
