Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio

A dive into the ancient history, before the Romans conquered the region. An unusual itinerary which will take you into the heart of Etruscan towns.

Duration: 8 hours + transfer time from/to pick up/drop off location.
Morning

Arrival in Orvieto, a small town north of Rome, founded by the Etruscans in the 9th century. The first stop is the Saint Patrick’s Well, which dates back to 1500. You will be able to walk down the steps to the bottom of the well and, thanks to an innovative system of helicoidal stairs, those going down will never meet those going up. Next stop will be the city center, where you can visit the panoramic Tower of the Muslim, the impressive Dome, the culverts and the cisterns of the “Underground Orvieto.”

Afternoon

In the afternoon, the excursion continues in Civita di Bagnoregio, one of the most beautiful and enchanted Italian towns. This “frozen” town is the perfect destination for those who want to see something different from the usual touristic sights. Civita was erected on a tuff, or volcanic, rock in the middle of a wide valley and it can be reached only by walking over a long bridge that seems to be suspended in the air. The evocative town is also known as “the dying town” as it counts only 10 inhabitants.
