Project Description

Enjoy a relaxing trip from Rome to Orvieto! Overlooking the fascinating Umbrian countryside, Orvieto is an important Etruscan site, perched high atop a tuff hill. It will capture you with the magical charm of a Medieval town chosen as a natural fortress in the past.
The richly decorated gothic Cathedral dominates the town; a surprising “Day of Judgment” will leave you speechless. You will appreciate this hill town and have lunch in a selected winery where you will taste the best wine in Italy.

Gothic Cathedral

The main highlight is the Gothic Cathedral. Dazzling multicolored mosaics and splendid bas-reliefs cover its façade. The interior contains the relics of the Miracle of Bolsena and incomparable frescoes of the “Apocalypse” by Fra Angelico and Luca Signorelli‘s “Day of Judgment” and” Life after Death.”

Papal Palace

The Papal Palace across the square, a monumental Gothic structure, was a residence for the Popes. You may admire many Renaissance and Gothic Palaces ( all visits from outside during the walking tour).

Discover Orvieto Well

Included in the price and worth the visit is St Patrick’s Well, carved in the tuff. It will impress you with its over 200 feet depth and the remarkably intertwined staircases that never meet.

Lunch at a renowned winery

At lunchtime, you will have the opportunity to taste 4 Umbrian wines enjoying a traditional meal (all included). You will also visit the vineyard, the winery, and the Etruscan Caves. People come to Orvieto from Rome also to see an Italian vinery. In case you are interested, they send their products all over the world.
