This tour is perfect for those who wish to take in the flavours and history of Etruscan Italy and enjoy the taste of typical italian products. Drive along the country roads through the lush landscapes for an hour ride to Orvieto.
Orvieto is perched on a plateau of tufo rock (soft volcanic rock) that was once an island in the sea that covered the Paglia valley below. Here you will have time to explore one of the finest Duomos in Italy, a gem of Gothic architecture and take an hour long tour of the underground city with its winding tunnels and Etruscan artefacts. This tour allows you to explore 3000 years of history by following the ancient passageways, tunnels, stairs and hidden rooms. Another important stop is St. Patrick's Well. Commissioned by Pope Clement VII who sought refuge here during the sack of Rome, this 203 feet deep well boasts double spiralled staircases for easier access to the water.
After exploring this charming town with amazing views you will head to Civita Bagnoregio, an almost deserted town accessible only by a foot bridge. With only 25-50 inhabitants it resembles a ghost town. Here you can stroll the narrow streets and marvel at the existence of a place where time stopped several hundreds of years ago.
Returning to Civitavecchia, catch a glimpse of a spectacular panorama of Lake Bolsena from Montefiasacone town and visit the church of S. Flaviano where the founder of the wine Est Est Est is buried! We can replace Orvieto with a visit to Tuscania or Tarquinia instead.
Due to a mud slide the road to the bridge has been closed , so the only way to get there is walk for about 400 meters.
