A charming escape from the crowds of Rome. Head into the Italian countryside to see the many churches of Orvieto and the birthplace of St Francis of Assisi.
This was a fantastic trip, lunch was excellent, the only hiccup was not enough time allowed to visit the sites
Excellent guide in Assisi and a nice lunch
Our tour guide was a disappointment, she couldn't speak or understand much English and didn't seem interested in the group. The trip to Orvieto was a beautiful ride on the comfortable bus. Orvieto is awesome!!! We only got 1 hour free time to look around, I wish we could have skipped lunch as a group later in the day and do lunch on our own so we could have had more time in each place. Lunch was only average anyway. We had some ladies that were late getting back to the bus so they held the bus and made us late to Assisi so we only got 10 minutes free time there. Again, they should have made lunch shorter, it was about 2 wasted hours and way out of our way. The tour itself I would give 2 stars, do it with a different company it was Eco tours or do it on your own, the 2 towns I give 5 stars. I felt cheated we didn't get much free time to see either place.
A great day out of Rome.

As always Viator come through, we booked three tickets to go to Orvieto and Assisi this was going to be our second time in both cities, but we took our granddaughter on this trip. The the local tour operator that Viator choose as always were excellent. We were pick up at the hotel on time, left from the travel agency on time the tour guide was very good. In Orvieto he gave us a good explanation of the sites and gave us plenty of free time, on our way to Assisi we stopped for a great lunch included with the tour in the Umbria region. When we got to Assisi we picked up another tour guide from the area which he gave us an excellent walking tour of the city. It was long tiring tour that lasted for 12 hours but worth every minute. Excellent tour.
Sylvia was wonderful. Beautiful countryside, churches and towns
Great tour guide and overall tour. The morning started foggy but cleared up nicely to take in all the amazing sites.

Absolutely wonderful day. The guide Mara took great care of the group. Lunch was quite tasty. Only negative was no free time at all in Assisi, I had to basically leave the group at times to take photos - maybe reduce the time at the third place and allow more free time in Assisi? The fellow travellors on this tour was the best out of all the trips I did in Italy - really nice group of people.
Awesome in all respects - bus a little uncomfortable but the aches were worth it with Orvieto and Assisi two of the most wonderful places in Italy. Stunning from start to finish with an excellent guide who took the time to share his knowledge and to help create a Oedipal day for all.
This was the best part of our trip to Rome, Our Guide Christina as great and was very friendly. It was great to get out of the crowded city to the Umbria countryside. There was ample time to go around Assisi, but we wish we had some more time to stop by the great range of shops selling curios. If you are doing this as a religious person its really a heartwarming experience to see the burial place of St.Clare and St.Francis.
Our driver Marco was specially helpful helping us with our kids strollers.
