Duration: 9 hrs
Location: Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoregio
Amidst any of your numerous private tours of Rome, as you get a little adventurous and head further outside of the entire Greater Rome Area, place which you would simply not want to miss visiting would be Orvieto, a quaint Umbrian city in the Province of Terni as well as Civita Di Bagnoregio, a historical Viterbo town.
Full to the brim with history and culture, there is a very wide variety of sights which you will get to see and experience firsthand while on your guided tour of Rome. For instance, you will see that first up the very location of the city is itself so intense, with straight faced cliffs intertwined with huge protective walls.
Additionally the legacy of Papal Residences in Orvieto is grandiose in itself, given the fact that outside of Rome, only Orvieto and Viterbo ever had Papal palaces. So the legacy of the Pope and his connection to Orvieto itself makes a compelling case for visiting the city.
CIVITA DI BAGNOREGIO
The location of the town – atop a plateau that overlooks the entire Tiber river valley itself renders a tour of Civita Di Bagnoregio completely obligatory. Moreover, clearly the historical architecture of the entire town, spanning several centuries is unique and of unparalleled quality which certainly deems a visit to Civita Di Bagnoregio quintessential.
Amidst either of these tours, whether we are referring to a tour of Terni or a tour of Viterbo you will find that every aspect of the trip would be absolutely memorable. For instance, there is a wide range of cuisine to relish on these trips. Further, given the fact that both Orvieto and Civita Di Bagnoregio are at a reasonable distance from Rome proper, there is immense scenic beauty to view all along the way.
Therefore against such a backdrop it becomes amply clear that if you are on the lookout for private tours in Rome which take you a little away from the city and yet have so much to offer, then look no further than a tour of Orvieto or a tour of Civita Di Bagnoregio. Either way it is assured that you will enjoy these tours through and through!
