Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
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.
  • Enjoy the best sights in the Umbrian countryside on this day trip from Rome
  • Visit Orvieto’s famous 13th-century Gothic cathedral, the Orvieto Cathedral
  • Tour the town of Assisi, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed town
  • Explore Basilica di San Francesco where St. Francis of Assisi once worshipped
What to Expect
Your day begins with pickup from your Rome hotel or a central meeting point. Travel in a coach north along the River Tiber for 1.5 hours to reach the Umbria region. The tour stops first in Orvieto, a quaint hilltop village famous for its 13th-century Gothic cathedral. Here you’ll explore town on foot taking time to explore the mosaics, sculptures, and stained glass of the Orvieto Cathedral. After lunch on the shores of Lake Trasimeno, you’ll head to the UNESCO-listed town of Assisi, the birthplace and home of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of Italy. Walking tours visit important locations in St. Francis’ life, including the stall where he was reportedly born. On the drive back to Rome, you'll stop by the Santa Maria degli Angeli to visit the 9th-century basilica where St. Francis was thought to have worshipped. Your tour ends back at the departure point.

Very good. Bus left on time, the guide was knowledgeable and helpful. Returned exactly on time. Driver was always pleasant and smiling. The only negative aspect was the lunch which was much below expectations
