"Fabrizio, Words cannot describe how thankful I am that we hired your services for our recent trip! It was such a pleasure to have someone as friendly and knowledgeable as you and your staff show us so many of the major sights as well as ones that were "off the beaten path". You always had a smile on your face and worked with us so effortlessly with our wants and needs that there was nothing for us to think about except what to order for lunch or what ELSE to buy! So many of my favorite memories will certainly be of the things we saw and did during the day tours with your company.I will not hesitate to recommend your services to others and look forward to seeing you again some day myself on another adventure in Italy! Ciao!"

Here is our 8-hour excursion to explore the major Medieval villages in the region of Umbria. It is considered to be an important destination because of its scenic beauty, artistic
traditions and cultural heritage.



The driver will pick you up at your hotel
in Rome and take you to Orvieto. It is a testament to the Renaissance and Medieval periods.
Once an Etruscan fortress, Orvieto is home to an excellent Etruscan Museum as well as a
spectacular Duomo. It's also a favorite papal retreat due to its proximity to Rome. Orvieto enjoys a spectacular 360 degree view of the Umbrian hills
and valleys.
Because of its location, Orvieto was the ultimate protected refuge in times of siege. The
enchanting city is situated close to the border with the Lazio region. Your tour-manager will make a
stop in front of the major attraction, namely the charming walled hill town and its Cathedral of
Orvieto. Many people believe that this Duomo is the most beautiful church in all of Italy. This is
due to its splendid and decorative facade built in the Gothic style. The greatness of this area's
cultural and artistic heritage are complemented by the delicious specialties of the local cuisine.
Of course, Orvieto Bianco is one of the finest of the Umbrian wines. In fact, you'll make a stop for
lunch* right in the
piazza where you can enjoy an interesting combination of several types of truffles and cheeses
while indulging in a glass of Orvieto Classico house wine. You will notice that this picturesque
citadel boasts the famous hand-painted Majolica pottery. Every piece in the building is a work of
art made by countless masters. We'll then drive to the Medieval city of Todi. It was probably
founded by the Umbrian citizens of Veio. The ancient city of Todi was influenced by the Etruscans,
and later became Romanized during the mid-4th century BC. You will admire the major highlights of this historical town, including the Temple of Santa Maria della Consolazione and the temple dedicated to
S. Maria dell' Annunziata. The Church of
San Fortunato has a most elegant bell tower.
Sightseeing will continue on our way
back to Rome.

It includes private car transfers and a fluent, English speaking driver-guide.
