Description

Our private transfer from Rome takes you through the scenic countryside of Umbria, where we’ll stop in Orvieto en route to Florence.  It’s a perfect way to see one of the most interesting cities in Italy and break up the trip at the same time!

This tour is also available starting in Florence and ending in Rome.

Features of this day trip:

  • Pickup at your Rome lodgings
  • 90-min drive to Orvieto in air-conditioned vehicle
  • Orvieto Cathedral
  • The underground City of Orvieto
  • St. Patrick’s Well
  • Amazing lookout points
  • The Medieval hamlet of Civita di Bagnoregio
  • Panoramic view of Lake Bolsena from Montefiascone
  • Church of San Flaviano
  • Dropoff at your Florence lodgings

After leaving the port of Civitavecchia, we will drive along country roads through lush landscapes to Orvieto.

ORVIETO

Orvieto is perched on a plateau of volcanic rock that was once an island in the sea that covered the Paglia valley below.  Here you will have time to explore the Duomo, one of the finest cathedrals in Italy, a gem of Gothic architecture with shimmering mosaics on the facade. 

Now prepare for some time travel!  You’ll cover 3000 years of history in an hour-long tour of the underground city.  In its ancient passageways, winding tunnels, hidden rooms and Etruscan artifacts the fascinating story unfolds.

Another important stop is St. Patrick's Well.  The well, over 200 feet deep, was commissioned by Pope Clement VII, who sought refuge here during the Sack of Rome in 1527.  The most interesting feature of the well is the ingenious double set of spiraling staircases, one for those going down and one for those going up, which enabled citizens and their mules to fetch their water without encountering oncoming “traffic”.

Of course, being on top of a rock, Orvieto has many lookout points where you’ll get amazing views of the countryside.

Meeting Point

Faq

1. Is this tour private?

The tour is private, just for your party.

2. Is the driver also a guide?

Our English-speaking drivers are NOT licensed guides. In order to provide you with the best-in-class service, our English-speaking driving guides have been trained to offer our clients a nice overview with information regarding the major highlights avoiding the expensive charges of hiring a private guide. Due to strict Italian laws & regulations that protect officially licensed guides, our driving guides can comment and explain the sights only from inside the vehicle but are not allowed to do so once they are outside the vehicle. They are regularly licensed instead to chauffeur the public. We highly recommend that you never book with any touring company that does not make this clear.

3. Does the driver go with us inside the monuments?

No, only a licensed guide is authorized to accompany you during the visit of sights. Our driver will drop you off close to the sights but will stay with the vehicle for the duration of your visit.

4. Does this tour include lunch and admission fees to sites? Can we do wine tasting?

Tickets and lunch are not included in the rate. On request, we can make arrangements for wine tasting at an extra cost. Please contact our office for pricing and reservations.

5. Is the itinerary flexible?

Our itineraries are completely flexible, and we will be happy to operate any changes to the original itinerary (within reason). Please contact our office with all the requests you may have so that we can better organize your day.

6. What is the duration of the tour?

The duration of this tour is 8/9 hours including pickup at your hotel in Rome and drop off in Florence or vice versa

7. Is gratuity included in the price?

Tips are never included in our quotes. We think that a tip shouldn’t be included in the rate otherwise it would be a tax!!! Once in Italy do not feel as though you have to tip everyone because someone told you to. Tip only if you really liked the service. Tips are generally: 10% not bad 15 % great 20 % best tour in my life. Please report any abuse.

Cancellation Policy

If you miss your flight or if your airline decides to cancel the flight due to bad weather or if your flight is directed to another airport on arrival, please advise us on time (as soon as you know) or a full charge will be made.

Please give us enough time so we can accept other reservations and allocate them to our chauffeurs. If the ship does not make it to the pier for bad weather, you will not be considered responsible so NO CHARGE will be made to your credit card. A full charge will be made for a no-show-up.
