Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoreggio.
Rome Shore Excursion RST#2 - Civitavecchia Cruise Port Shore Excursion.
Just a short journey north of Rome lies the enchanting little hill town of Orvieto. Close by is the postcard perfect village of Civita de Bagnoregio.
Together, our Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoregio Day Tour is a delightful excursion into the beautiful and relaxing countryside of Lazio and Umbria away from the exciting hustle and bustle of Rome.
Orvieto, a town perched high atop a hill. Orvieto is impressively situated above a volcanic plug, which is a volcanic landform created when magma hardens within a vent on an active volcano.
Upon arrival, we will visit the stunning Cathedral in Orvieto, which was built in the fourteenth century.
Many significant works of art can be found in the cathedral, and a visit to the Chapel of the Madonna di San Brizio is a must-see.
It contains frescoes begun by Fra Angelico and finished by Signorelli.
Civita di Bagnoregio
Civita di Bagnoregio, a small ancient village that clings to the precipice of the steep hill it sits on, a small island in an eerie sea of uninhabitable landscape that makes up the surrounding valleys.
For this reason views of Civita di Bagnoregio from across the valley are incredibly picturesque.
This is also one of the most popular villages featured in post cards from Italy.
Civita is a traffic-free community, and can be reached only by a footbridge suspended in the air.
Perhaps for this reason, and its complete isolation from the real world, that only about 20 people live here year around.
