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.

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.
A long day but well worth it.
I think Assisi is the most beautiful walled hill town around Rome. Orvieto was a surprise, a wonderful surprise. Visited before, stayed overnight but the town had a not lived in look because so many of the shops and dwellings were mere rubble. Now there is activity in every nook and corner and the views from the ramparts are still breath taking.
Strongly recommend it.
This tour was amazing!
We went just yesterday and we had the best if time. Our guide Cristina was warm, caring and knowledgeable and the driver Guiseppe was great. Orvieto is a beautiful medieval town worthy of a visit. Then we had lunch in Tuscany and the food was great. We went on to Assisi where we met another local guide Marixelle who was great and funny. Assisi is unforgettable. The tour goes and comes on time. The bus is comfortable and if's worth your money. Highly recommended.
A full long day but a great way to see both cities and the time in each is perfect. We went in March and although it was warm and sunny in Rome it was quiet chilly as both cities are high up in the mountains. We were prepared with layers so not an issue, but something to remember as some of our people had only shorts and shirts. Made it not as enjoyable for them unfortunately. The views form both cities to the country side are just outstanding. The churches and streets are a site to behold. Delivers on what they promise.
It was a great day!
