Travel from Rome to Orvieto and Assisi on this full-day trip, and discover two charming towns set amid picture-perfect Italian countryside. Start your day in Orvieto to see its Gothic showstopper, Orvieto Cathedral, followed by lunch near Lake Trasimeno. Explore the UNESCO-listed town of Assisi in Umbria, learning about its patron, St Francis of Assisi, and then stop in Santa Maria degli Angeli to admire its 9th-century Basilica where the saint once worshiped.

Highlights

  • Hotel pickup included
  • Led by a local guide
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Lunch included
Leave Rome and travel north by air-conditioned coach, following the River Tiber toward Tuscany. After roughly 1.5 hours on the road, you’ll arrive in the gorgeous town of Orvieto. Seemingly sprouting out of the volcanic rock on which it stands, the hilltop town boasts a history that dates back to Etruscan times.

Stretch your legs and walk around the town, seeing highlights like the 14th-century Orvieto Cathedral – a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with a glistening façade of stained glass, mosaics and sculptures. Soak up Orvieto’s charms and admire the countless churches that are scattered around its center.

Return to your coach and travel through the rolling hills toward Umbria – Tuscany’s lesser known but just as captivating neighbor. Stop for lunch on the shores of Lake Trasimeno, and then continue to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Assisi.

Famed as the birthplace of Italy’s Catholic patron saint, St Francis of Assisi, the sleepy little town documents all the highs and lows of his life. On a walking tour, see the stall where he was said to be born, his childhood home, and the spot where he pledged his life to his vocation. Hear of the town’s other, lesser-known saint, St Clare, who became one of St Francis’ first true followers. Visit the Convent of Santa Chiara, which is dedicated to her, before heading to Assisi's Basilica di San Francesco for a tour.

Other Assisi highlights include the town hall square, Piazza del Comune, with its turreted ‘palace’-- Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo. Admire the Roman Temple of Minerva and then return to your coach for the journey south.

Before your tour ends, enjoy a final stop in the town of Santa Maria degli Angeli to see its beautiful basilica – a 9th-century church where St Francis reportedly worshiped. Head back to Rome and finish your tour at the start point in the early evening.

The best tour we did wile in Europe

Reviewed by: Irene J, August 2014

a wonderful tour, super friendly tour guide, lots to see and a 3 course lunch as well. Everyone on the tour had a brilliant day out and I can not fault it at all - 10/out of 10. Would only ever book with your company again and sorry we didn't have time to go on other tours, they had some we really fancied and would have booked - It was so easy we booked the trip from the UK via the web and printed off our tickets as we sat in the living room. You worry that you can't see things in real time to make a judgement .... we sure hit the jackpot with this friendly efficient and knowledgeable company. Thank you for a great day.
