Private Tour of Lazio and Umbria Regional Gems

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.

Etruscans of Italy Day Trip to Tarquinia and Tuscania

3. Etruscans of Italy Day Trip to Tarquinia and Tuscania

Travel back to the days of the Etruscans on a full-day shore excursion by private minivan from Civitavecchia. First, transfer to Tarquinia in the province of Viterbo to explore one of the oldest cities of the Etruscan League. Here, a local guide will take you the Necropolis of Monterozzi where some of the 6,000 Etruscan tombs date back to the 7th century BCE. Marvel at chambers carved in rock, erotic frescoes, and mythical scenes of banquets, horse racing, demons and more. Next, stroll the medieval walls of Tarquinia, and go to the romantic 12th-century Church of Santa Maria in Castello. Take in panoramic views of Tuscany and the Tyrrhenian Sea before driving to the seaside for lunch. Enjoy a bracing walk in the Natural Reserve, looking out for flamingos and migratory birds. Transfer to Tuscania, a major trading city during the age of the Etruscans, and one of the first bishopric seats in Italy. Go to the Lateran church of Saint Peter, and the finely decorated church of Santa Maria Maggiore. See ancient sarcophagi at the Etruscan Museum. Then, marvel at the medieval Tower of Lavello, and the fountain of Fontana delle Sette Cannelle. Although one day is not enough to solve the mysteries of the Lords of the Sea, by the time you transfer back to Civitavecchia you will have a good idea how the Etruscan civilization influenced the Ancient Romans.

Learn about how the numerous popes that have lived in the Vatican continuously enriched it with different artworks.  Admire the most beautiful Roman ancient statues and gaze in awe at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, before continuing on through the Hall of the Painted Maps. Finally, witness the unmissable ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and marvel at the sublime 'Last Judgment' by Michelangelo.

Absolutely wonderful day! Our guide, Andrea, was personable and tailored our full day private tour to our wishes. We were picked up on time directly from our hotel. No problems whatsoever during the entire trip. We were able to enjoy far more unique sites in central Italy than if we had attempted to do this on our own with a rental car.

Outstanding guide

Our guide was vigilant in keeping tabs on individual group members’ needs and keeping the group informed; he mixed a depth of knowledge on a wide range of topics and issues with genuine humor and humanity; we unreservedly recommend him to others
