Full description
Enjoy a day away from the bustle of Rome on a full-day tour of Umbria, one of the most picturesque regions of Italy. Rich in vineyards, olive groves and the hillside villages, the most famous site in the region is the UNESCO World Heritage town of Assisi.

Upon arrival in this mystical place of St. Francis, walk inside the ancient walls. Built on the green slopes of Mount Subasio, the colorful houses of ink stone, narrow streets, flowered balconies and ornate palaces will offer great views. A highlight of your time in Assisi will be a visit to the Basilica of San Francesco to see the Renaissance masterpieces by Giotto and Cimabue.

After lunch, continue to Orvieto to admire the magnificence of the cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with glittering facade windows, mosaics and sculptures. Enjoy the charm of Orvieto, and admire the many churches scattered around its historic center. Return to Rome for a hotel back in the early evening.

It was really the best tour I have had during my trip to Italy.

Thanks Debora for your guidance during our tour to Assisi and Orvieto, thank you for your patience with us, we really enjoyed your company. Gian Luca, our awesome driver, thank you for drive us safe. We were surprised to see you how you drived in those Orvieto's tiny streets. Thanks both of you that made our trip unforgetable.
