This was a last minute find and I’m so glad to have gone to Orvieto and Assisi. First was a beautiful stop in Orvieto, cable car to the top of the town and then some free time to see the cathedral and look at the local markets. Then onto lunch- where I very much appreciated that lunch broke up all the driving. Then arrived at Assisi with a lovely local guide who look us through the town and we able to capture some beautiful pictures and learn this history of Assisi especially of St Clare and St Francis. For me a trip well worth making if you have a free day when in Rome. Keep in mind that’s there’s a lot of driving as Assisi is quite far away, so if that’s not your thing this isn’t the trip for you.

An awesome day discovering places places and people we have heard about. The tour guide was gracious and helpful and the local guide was extremely passionate and knowledgeable. A memorable day in our trip to Italy

Orvieto and Assisi were amazing. But we were not too happy with the late return and having to wait as others were being dropped off at hotels. What was supposed to be a 10 hour tour was actually 12 1/2 hours

Had a wonderful time with Mauro our guide. Very knowledgeable and pleasant.

Very interesting tour with 3 stops so very worth it.
