Overview

Trade the crowds of the Eternal City for the countryside of Umbria on this day trip from Rome to Assisi and Orvieto. With a guide, you’ll travel by coach first to Orvieto, a hilltop town known for its Gothic masterpiece, Orvieto Cathedral. Have lunch near Lake Trasimeno, and then visit the town of Assisi, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the home of St Francis of Assisi. Finish with a stop in Santa Maria degli Angeli, where you’ll see the 9th-century basilica where St Francis once worshipped.
  • Day trip from Rome to Assisi and Orvieto
  • See the breathtakingly beautiful Orvieto Cathedral
  • Enjoy lunch at a restaurant on the shores of Lake Trasimeno
  • Spend your afternoon in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Assisi in Umbria
  • Explore Basilica di San Francesco and the Convent of Santa Chiara
  • Stop in the town of Santa Maria degli Angeli to see a 9th-century basilica where St Francis of Assisi worshipped
Your day trip from Rome to Orvieto and Assisi starts as you leave the city by coach, heading north along the River Tiber toward the region of Umbria, a picturesque piece of central Italy that neighbors Tuscany. After an approximate 1.5-hour drive, arrive in Orvieto, a hill town that seems to rise dramatically out of the volcanic rock it’s perched on and is known for its long history dating back to the Etruscans.
Explore town on foot, enjoying the Italian charm and passing by many churches, particularly Orvieto Cathedral, a Gothic structure that dates back to the late 1200s and is noted for its stained glass, sculptures and mosaics.
Back on your coach, continue across the rolling landscapes toward Lake Trasimeno, where you’ll stop for lunch. Then head to Assisi, a World Heritage–listed town famed for being the birthplace of St Francis of Assisi, a patron saint of Italy and one of the most legendary figures in religious history.
Take a walking tour of town to see sites related to St Francis’ life, including the stall where he is thought to have been born, his former home and the place where he vowed to dedicate his life to the church. You’ll also learn about Assisi’s other hometown saint, St Clare, one of St Francis’ followers. Visit both the Convent of Santa Chiara, named for her, and the Basilica di San Francesco, dedicated to St Francis, plus see other Assisi sights like Piazza del Comune, Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, the town hall and the Roman Temple of Minerva.
Return to your coach to start the drive from Assisi to Rome, stopping on the way in Santa Maria degli Angeli to visit its 9th-century basilica where St Francis is said to have worshipped. Your day trip ends when you arrive back in Rome.

... Excellent guide at Assisi. Seeing the countryside was exquisite! A tour worth embarking on ... onboard guide was also knowledgable and able to translate in English and Spanish.

Very long day, 13 hours with more than half on the bus. Lunch included was worst we have had on many other tours. Bus driver was never helpful in assisting on or off bus. Guide on board was mute most of the time. Local guide in Assisi was fantastic! I would not recommend this tour.

Our guide Silvia was really personable and interesting, she made the day a wonderful one for us. The sights we saw, beautiful Orvieto and the Duomo and then memorable Assisi and visiting the holiest of places (after the Vatican) and the Porziuncola we knew it was very special! It was along day but so memorable and worthwhile, we will remember it forever! Congratulations to Silvia for her patience and happy personality and to the team of drivers, we really appreciated your efforts🤩

This day trip from Rome was well worth it. It ended up being a 12 hour trip since the tour was very thorough. Our tour guide, Silvia was very professional and very mindful of the needs of the group members. I will definitely recommend this trip. We'll worth it.

Superb visit despite the weather. Great driver in dreadful conditions. Guides were informative, friendly and helpful. Both Orvieto and Assisi are fascinating places of natural and historical beauty.

The tour was great, the guides were knowledgable and the driver and bus were excellent. My couple of comments comment is that in my opinion we would have had a better trip with a little more free time in Assisi and skipping the restaurant stop. I would suggest going to Assisi first and allowing for more free time plus lunch at Assisi. Orvieto was nice but we were before most stores opened so it was much of a waste of time. By going to Assisi first and eliminating the lunch stop at the out of the way restaurant (which wasn’t that good!) we would have easily an extra hour in Assisi and have more productive time in Orvieto. Great tour!

Very nice tour. Quite a bit of walking in Assis. Had a lot of rain. Orvieto was interesting and they had a little train to get up to the town.

This was a great tour of Orvieto and I enjoyed the time to explore. Lunch was good. The time in Assisi was good but would have liked at least another 30 min to check out Assisi. Would recommend this tour for any 1st timers

So. of all the things the should not have done, They didn't show up to pick us up. To make matters worse, they unkindly at rudely blamed us and told us that we had to pay for the entire even. What ever the excuse they presented and what ever attempt they had to made us feel diminished, all they did was to make a vocal unhappy person client. You should know that yoru methods are not a good business is carried out. You may keep this out your own star ratings but there are others both in Europe and The USA, CANADA SOUTH AMERICA AND ASIA .Do you have any clients from those places? You present your company as being very capable and concerned, ready to solve all issues that arise but in fact you.creat anxiety and confusion. Finally you keep the funds sent to you together shamelessly. At best you are thieves. C. S Hrankowski

Sylvia and our bus driver were good hosts. We enjoyed the trip and knowledge. Sylvia tried to accomodate people of different mobility levels to help their trip be easier. the lunch was good and bus was clean. The only negative I can say was that we were rushed some at Assisi and Mary Angelis. A little more free time would be good. Overall good value and excellent experience.
