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.
A wonderful day tour, beautiful scenery and great guide. Orvieto and Assisi are beautiful and well worth a visit. I have since returned to both.
Very good, long drive through beautiful countryside. Guide was great

Tremenda experiencia, lugar hermoso . Ovieto y Perugina nos encanto tambien.
Informative and relaxing trip. Felt well taken care of by tour guide. Wonderful day!
Very nice lunch on the way, wished we could have stayed in Orvieto more than an hour, but there was a lot to see and go over in Assisi. On a whole the trip was very nice and would recommend it. The bus was a small bus that help approximately 20, and was very comfortable and our driver did a great job. Both of our guides were very informative and we enjoyed them as well.
This trip is fabulous and our guide Christina went out of her way to make the tour a memorable one. The tour includes the Santa Maria Degli Angeli Basilica situated on the plain below Assisi which was really interesting as the small 13th Century church within the vast basilica is where Saint Clare and Saint Francis prayed together.a church within a church. St Francis also died in the Chapel of the Transito in the bassilica. The only disappointment in all three of the churches visited in Assisi is that photography is totally banned inside the churches. This is a ridiculous rule as we visited countless churches in Italy with the only restriction being no flash photography. It would also have been nice to have been be able to visit the picturesque early 14th Century Rocca Maggiore Castle perched on the hilltop above Assisi as tour option for those who were not that religious or on a pilgrimage to see the Saint Clare and Saint Francis Churches in Assisi.
Orvieto was also an interesting, pretty, medieval hilltop town with a magnificent Gothic church where photography is allowed inside the church. This day trip is a full 13 hour trip as you only arrive back in Rome at about 9pm but it's really worth it.
Superb day out. Great lunch. Our tour guide Sylvia and driver Luigi were fab!
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.
