Head to enchanting Assisi on this full-day semi-private tour from Rome. You'll get to wander the streets of the Umbrian town, follow in the footsteps of St. Francis, and stop in incredible Orvieto on the way back, one of the most striking hill towns you'll ever encounter.
Enjoy a day away from the bustle of Rome, in a one-day tour of Umbria, one of the most picturesque regions of Italy. Rich in vineyards, olive groves, and the hillside villages, the most famous site in the region is the UNESCO World Heritage town of Assisi. Once you've arrived in this mystical place you'll walk inside the ancient walls, built on the green slopes of Mount Subasio, and between the colorful houses of inkstone, the narrow streets, the flowered balconies, and ornate palaces. A highlight of your time in town will be the visit to the Basilica of San Francesco where you'll get to see the Renaissance masterpieces by Giotto and Cimabue. After lunch, you'll continue to Orvieto to admire the magnificence of the cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with glittering facade windows, mosaics and sculptures. Immerse yourself in the charm of Orvieto, and admire the many churches scattered around its historic center before returning to Rome in the early evening.
