This was a last minute find and I’m so glad to have gone to Orvieto and Assisi. First was a beautiful stop in Orvieto, cable car to the top of the town and then some free time to see the cathedral and look at the local markets. Then onto lunch- where I very much appreciated that lunch broke up all the driving. Then arrived at Assisi with a lovely local guide who look us through the town and we able to capture some beautiful pictures and learn this history of Assisi especially of St Clare and St Francis. For me a trip well worth making if you have a free day when in Rome. Keep in mind that’s there’s a lot of driving as Assisi is quite far away, so if that’s not your thing this isn’t the trip for you.
The tourguide was brilliant! Giovanna, very pationate about her job, knowledgeable, communicative. The tour was very intense to get some introduction abd then to see major points for a while. Truly recommend 3 hours with the guide. Whats most important, please add a notice that after the trip with the guide you need at least 1h to go up, rest a bit, take pictures and go down (for the people who are going for the next trip e.g. Sistine Chapel or Museum. Not much time and quite a long walk from one exit to the next entrance. Thank you for your time Giovanna!
Maybe you don't know but the visit to the basilica is free of charge, just like every other church in Italy, and to go in the dome you can buy a ticket there, which wouldn't cost you as much as the tour....but in doing that, you'll have spared somw money, but also you lose on the very important and interesting information oue guide us. She gave us a short history lesson and helped us understand what we are seeing. Loved it with the guide. Up in the dome the view ist the best, ans worth going up the stairs.
Очень хорошая экскурсия, прекрасно организованная, отличное соотношение цены и качества. Небольшая группа. Oбед в ресторане на ферме Agriturizmo тоже понравился. Замечательный гид Кристина, благодарны ей за чудесно проведенный день. Экскурсию рекомендуем!
One should be in decent physical and cardio shape to do this excursion and feel others could have benefited from knowing of this at booking. The tour overall is highly recommended and very much was a highlight of my trip. The guide was fantastic!
