TOUR DESCRIPTION

Our Orvieto tour from Rome will help you discover Umbria, “the green heart of Italy”, a region between Tuscany and Lazio. A perfect destination for a day trip from Rome.

We provide this tour in two versions:

- Orvieto by train:
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel* and you'll take a taxi to Termini train station, where you'll get on the train to Orvieto. After the tour, you'll be back to Termini.

- Orvieto by car: Your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel; you'll reach Orvieto by car. At the end of the tour, you'll be dropped off at your hotel.

Orvieto was founded by the Etruscans more than 2,500 years ago with the name of Velzna, and it was also the center of the Etruscan religion. The leaders of the twelve major Etruscan cities gathered here, in the sanctuary called “Fanum Voltumnae”, to discuss politics, economy, and religion. Even though it was destroyed by the Romans in the year 264 B.C., the city thrived during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, when most of its churches, palaces and piazzas were built. This lovely town is nestled on a tufa hill whose slopes are so steep that they look like natural walls protecting the city, which looks over the magnificent countryside of Umbria – green fields and rows of cypresses stretching as far as the eye can see.

Your tour assistant will pick you up at your hotel and you’ll go together to Orvieto, where you’ll start your Orvieto tour from Rome with a city center walk led by a local, professional guide.

Discover the stunning medieval sights that make this town unique: the famous Duomo, one of the most beautiful churches in Italy; the Moro Tower, built in the 1200s as a symbol of the prosperity of the city; the medieval Palazzo del Popolo and many others. Your guide will lead you through the atmospheric little alleys that make this town so picturesque, with its beautiful squares and incredible views of the surrounding countryside.

After your morning tour, it’s time to sample the local cuisine: Orvieto is famous for its culinary traditions, and you’ll have some free time to try the delicious local dishes and wines. Once you’ve finished your leisurely lunch, you will continue exploring the underground of the city: subterranean tunnels and rooms carved by the Etruscans in the natural bedrock more than 2,000 years ago.

A delicious gelato at the famous Gelateria Pasqualetti will be the perfect ending to this lovely day in Umbria.

Choose our Orvieto tour from Rome and discover the landscapes, art, architecture and great food that have made this town famous worldwide.
