Car pick-up will be at the hotel in Rome, followed by a transfer to Assisi, a well preserved Medieval town in Umbria.
It is home to Italy's patron saint, St. Francis. The town maintains remarkable frescoes created by Giotto and Cimabue. Assisi is beautifully situated on a fertile hill, and brightened up by olive groves and cypress trees. It stretches out along the slopes of Mount Subasio in a lovely spot along the Valle Umbra.
You'll walk through the old fashioned St. Francis Basilica with its quaint chapels. Then, there are the narrow streets filled with artisan shops and fine art galleries, all worth a visit.
Upon entering the town, one inevitably experiences a Franciscan atmosphere. It has been documented and illustrated to a degree in famous literature. Its breathtaking panoramic views of wild poppies dotted by fields of sunflowers are marvelous.
After enjoying lunch in an authentic Umbrian restaurant, we will drive to Orvieto. Many visitors have appreciated this town for the greatness of its cultural, artistic and monumental heritage. All of this is complemented by the delicious specialties of the local cuisine. Don't miss tasting the Orvieto Bianco and Orvieto Classico. They are both some of the finest of the Umbrian wines.

All the tours can be modified and adapted to every demand!
