Meeting/Departure point at your accommodation in Florence/Rome
Via Orvieto & Bagnoregio
Rome to Florence via Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio
About 1.5 hours north of Rome we will reach the city of Orvieto. Orvieto has been a city of great prestige in several different historical periods. Beginning in the 9th Century BC the Etruscan civilization experienced a period of great splendor and importance. This was the most important town of the vast territory of Etruria. Later the Romans seized Orvieto from the Etruscans forcing them to leave the city and destroying almost all evidence of the Etruscan civilization. When the Holy Roman Empire fell, the city changed over to Gaul rule and later to the Longobards. In the Middle Ages, Orvieto reached its maximum splendor and it is in fact the period in which its magnificent Duomo was started in 1290. This beautiful example of Gothic architecture is worth a visit. The city has many interesting churches and palaces and is also a great place to eat. There are several very good eateries in the town.
Bagnoregio, also called “The Dying Town” is built on a mountain of tufa rock which has slowly eroded over the centuries making the city now accessible only by a long and spectacular pedestrian bridge. With only eight year-long inhabitants the town is a fascinating place to visit. This is the birthplace of St. Bonaventura and his relics can be seen in the Church of San Nicola in this town. The town has maintained all of its medieval buildings.
When you are finished visiting these two “off-the-beaten-track” places, your driver will bring you comfortably to your destination.

NEVER MISS THE SHIP - GUARANTEED TIMELY RETURN TO YOUR SHIP
We have been offering shore excursions for a very long time and we never had a customer that missed the ship. In the extremely unlikely event that you miss your ship due to the late arrival of one of our tours, we will arrange and pay for your accommodations, meals, and transportation to the next port of call.
PS. We know very well that on the ship they try to terrorize you, saying that if you reserve your day with a private tour company and you are late, they will not wait for your return and you will miss the ship. As you can imagine, in cases of bad traffic, accidents, etc. the big buses they use have to wait in line just like all the other vehicles, and if you are on one of our small vehicles it will be much easier to find alternative routes to bypass the traffic problems.
