Private tour to visit the lovely towns of Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio from Civitavecchia port
This shore excursion to Orvieto from Civitavecchia will start with a private pick-up at the port in Civitavecchia.
Your private driver will be waiting for you at the dock. After about two hours in a luxury Mercedes sedan or minivan you will arrive at the Medieval town of Civita di Bagnoregio. Perched atop a hill with breathtaking views, this fascinating old town offers a great opportunity for photos and a choice of restaurants should you decide to stay for lunch.
Then your private driver will take you to Orvieto in the beautiful region of Umbria. This picturesque town of Etruscan origin sits atop another hill overlooking the surrounding countryside. While meandering through the charming historical center with its Medieval and Renaissance palaces you will come across one of the main attractions: Orvieto's Cathedral, founded in 1290, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. You will then have the opportunity to visit the underground of Orvieto: an amazing labyrinth of grottoes and cellars dating back more than two thousand years.
After visiting the town you can choose to stop for a visit to a local winery in the beautiful countryside of Umbria just outside of Orvieto. You will visit the estate, learn about the production process and the varieties of local grapes, and indulge in a wine tasting. You can add this winery experience when making your booking by clicking on the additional options menu and selecting winery visit (with or without lunch).
At the end of this excursion, your driver will take you back to the port in Civitavecchia on time to board your cruise ship. Since this is a private tour, the driver will be at your disposal during the day, the duration and itinerary of this day trip can be customized according to your preferences and cruise schedule. Please note that this tour does not include a private guide, only an English-speaking driver. You will be free to explore the towns on your own.
