The tour in Umbria starts from Orvieto, one of the most fascinating cities of Umbria, a city rich in history that goes back to the Etruscan time, a city full of charm, with picturesque views and beautiful landscapes, a city rich in tradition and culture, with fine wines and traditional dishes of the Umbrian cuisine. After the visit of the magnificent Cathedral, superb masterpiece of Gothic art, your tour in Orvieto can bring you visiting the fascinating and interesting routes to get to know the Orvieto Underground, discovering the millenary, surprising and unexpected “Underground City”.


Orvieto is also very well known for producing some of the best Umbrian wines and during your Umbria tour, there will be the possibility to visit an excellent winery located in the Orvieto wine region and tasting the top Orvieto wines, possibly including also lunch with a typical Umbrian tasting menu overlooking the gorgeous Orvieto skyline and its magnificent surrounding countryside.


Your private Umbria tour, will then stop in one of the most charismatic and evocative towns in Italy: Civita di Bagnoregio. The village is very picturesque and it is located on top of rock rising high above a vast canyon ruled by wind and erosion and it is connected to the main land only by a bridge. The village is disappearing and it is known as “The Dying Town”. Every year, five centimetres of land tumbles into the ravine below and only few people still live there. Visiting Civita di Bagnoreagio and strolling along its streets, you will get its unique romantic atmosphere and its melancholic sense of abandon.

Orvieto: Built by the Etruscans on a cliff overlooking the surrounding valley, it was one of the 12 city-states allied in the Etruscan league, and probably one of the most important and fundamental. Very near to the territories of the rising power of Rome, which Orvieto represented a real and serious threat of expansionism, it was completely destroyed in 264 BC by its Roman army, to then be rebuilt in the following centuries, albeit very resized, by the Romans themselves. In the Medieval period it was an important municipality, often favoured by Florence who considered it to be a valuable ally in the fight against Siena. This was a period of great splendour for the city, and testimony to this are the beautiful buildings constructed in that period. In 1450 the municipality became part of the Vatican State, becoming a more important city, so much so that for centuries it constituted an alternative place to stay, for the Pope and for the papal clergy.

Civita di Bagnoregio:
one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, famously known as ‘the dying city’ because of the morphology of this region, caused by erosion and landslides. Founded by Etruscans more than 2,500 years ago, Civita was the birthplace of Saint Bonaventure, who died in 1274. The location of his boyhood house has long since fallen off the edge of the cliff. By the 16th century, Civita di Bagnoregio was beginning to decline, becoming eclipsed by its former suburb Bagnoregio. At the end of the 17th century, the bishop and the municipal government were forced to move to Bagnoregio because of a major earthquake that accelerated the old town’s decline. At that time, the area was part of the Papal States. In the 19th century, Civita di Bagnoregio’s location was turning into an island and the pace of the erosion quickened as the layer of clay below the stone was reached in the area where today’s bridge is situated.
