This daytrip to Orvieto and Assisi will start from your hotel in Rome where you will meet your private driver.
In about two hours in a luxury sedan or minivan you will reach the town of Orvieto in the beautiful region of Umbria. This beautiful town of Etruscan origin sits on a high cliff overlooking the surrounding countryside. Going through its charming historical center rich with Renaissance and Medieval palaces you will reach Orvieto's main attraction: the Cathedral, started in 1290, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture.
In about one hour you will then reach Assisi, located on the Western flanks of Mount Subasio. The town is famous for being the home-town of St. Francis founder of the Franciscan religious order. The papal Basilica of San Francesco is one of the most important sanctuaries in the world. The church complex, started in 1228, is a Unesco World Heritage site. Inside you can admire frescoes by the most important Italian painters like Giotto, Cimabue and Simone Martini. The tour will continue visiting Piazza del Comune, the birth-house of Saint Francis, the church of Santa Chiara.
After the visit of Assisi your driver will take you back to your hotel in Rome. This daytrip is designed to be done with a private driver only. You will have time to explore the towns on your own: about one hour of time in Orvieto and about three hours in Assisi, where you can have lunch in a typical restaurant to enjoy the delicious specialties of the Umbrian cuisine. In Assisi you may choose to have also a private guide, an art historian from our team, who will help you appreciate the richness of its art treasures.
