Tour to Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio and Pittigliano


Take this tour and travel to the edge of the world and time, and back! Orvieto, with its Duomo and astounding array of Medieval and Renaissance religious art, is a sight to behold.

Pitigliano, built into "tuff" (volcanic rock), is known as "Little Jerusalem" after its resemblance to the original. Its historical heritage is intact and yours to discover on a walk around town.

Immerse yourself in the stunning Tuscan and Umbrian backroads. Enjoy typical Tuscan cuisine in a countryside setting, toasting perhaps with a glass of Orvieto DOC Bianco, Rosso Orvietano or Bianco di Pitigliano! Taste the others in a visit to a local winery.

Moving along the 900 foot walkway that leads to the village of Civita di Bagnoregio is like crossing over into a dream. Founded by the Etruscans, this seemingly sequestered village sits, as if on a pedestal, far above the stunning clay hilled valley below.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was our 2nd tour with Roberto so we were familiar with each other and continued with our cultural experience. He continually engaged with us and we developed a great knowledge and appreciation of the region. Orvieto,and Civita di Bagnoregio were fascinating. The cities were unique and we loved walking around the roads and small pathways. We visited some beautiful basilicas and small quaint churches with neighborhood feeling. We experienced great art, and scenery. We highly recommend this tour.
