A private driver will pick you up for a relaxing trip from Rome to Orvieto! Overlooking the fascinating Umbrian countryside, Orvieto is an important Etruscan site, perched high atop a tuff hill. It will capture you with the magical charm of a Medieval town chosen as a natural fortress in the past.
The richly decorated gothic Cathedral dominates the town; a surprising “Day of Judgment” will leave you speechless. Following a local private guide, you will appreciate this hill town and have lunch in a selected winery where you will taste the best wine in Italy.

Pick up details and other info
Pick-up time is 8:30 am, customizable. We pick you up from all hotels, apartments, and B&B located within a radius of 10 kilometers from the Pantheon. Remember to cover your shoulders and knees before entering the Basilica. There are no contraindications for the descent to the well, but remember that you have to go down 248 steps and the same number of ascents. The steps are wide and comfortable, and the well is well lit up to the depth (53 meters). If you come with children, it is crucial to supervise them constantly, as the windows have no protection.
The main highlight is the Gothic Cathedral. Dazzling multicolored mosaics and splendid bas-reliefs cover its façade. The interior contains the relics of the Miracle of Bolsena and incomparable frescoes of the “Apocalypse” by Fra Angelico and Luca Signorelli‘s “Day of Judgment” and” Life after Death.”
The Papal Palace across the square, a monumental Gothic structure, was a residence for the Popes. You may admire many Renaissance and Gothic Palaces ( all visits from outside during the walking tour).
Discover Orvieto Well
The price includes the visit to St Patrick’s Well. Carved in the tuff, it will impress you with its over 200 feet depth and the remarkably intertwined staircases that never meet.
Lunch at a renowned winery
At lunchtime, you will have the opportunity to taste 4 Umbrian wines enjoying a traditional meal (all included). You will also visit the vineyard, the winery, and the Etruscan Caves. People come to Orvieto from Rome also to see an Italian vinery. In case you are interested, they send their products worldwide.
