Start your day with a pickup from your central Rome hotel, and relax on the journey north to the region of Umbria. The area boasts scenic countryside, with vineyards, olive trees, and hilltop villages scattered around the plains.
The most famous of Assisi’s hilltop villages is Assisi, a beautiful walled town that’s known as the birthplace of St. Francis. Hop out to discover its narrow streets, flower-decked balconies, and noble palaces, and learn about the saint’s connection to the town. Visit St. Francis Basilica, home to early Renaissance art by Giotto and Cimabue, and step inside the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli.
Enjoy a break for lunch in the town (own expense), and then travel to your second hilltop village of the day: Orvieto. Head up to the Old Town to admire the colorful Gothic façade of Orvieto Duomo, and take a look inside.
In the early evening, return to your transport for the journey back to Rome. Your day trip ends with a drop-off at your hotel.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
