Orvieto and Civita Di Bagnoregio
Orvieto is one of the principal sights of the region of Umbria, Italy. Its situation is marvelous – perched high above tufa cliffs – showing traces of every phase of history for the past three thousand years, culminating in its magnificent cathedral.
Civita di Bagnoregio .Resting atop a lovely volcanic tower, the small town of Civita di Bagnoregio has survived for centuries clinging to its high perch, but as the soft clay ground on its sides erodes, both ground footage and architecture are being lost.
Once your group is together you will then proceed to the city of Rome. This will take approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach the Orvieto. After around 1 hour and 30 minute drive you will reach this enchanting town located on a volcanic hill in the Umbria Region. Orvieto has the most amazing Domes of Italy ( Frescoes inside, mainly Signorelli’s, are just as amazing as those in the Vatican ones), several Etruscan Museums, given its ancient origin, and spectacular views! You will be able to spend in Orvieto around 1.5 hrs.
CIVITA DI BAGNOREGIO
You will reach Civita after 30 minute drive from Orvieto. The town is noted for its striking position atop a plateau of friable volcanic. Tuff overlooking the Tiber river valley, in constant danger of destruction as its edges fall off. Leaving the buildings built on the plate to crumble. It is a must see place, as words do not give it justice of how marvelous a view it is.
