The site of the city rises above the almost-vertical faces of tuff cliffs that are completed by defensive walls built of the same stone called Tufa. Orvieto was built originally in the Etruscan era, and it kept growing throughout the ages. It now has the looks of a medieval small town, but it’s still possible to understand its entire history by visiting the town’s most important sites. Among the important sites to visit in Orvieto is the Duomo, one of the most magnificent you’ll ever see.Civita di Bagnoreggio is a very small town located atop a plateau of friable volcanic tuff. It was founded during the Etruscan era, and during the centuries it never grew much in width, always remaining incredibly small. Nowadays the town has a very limited number of inhabitants, and it was known as a dying town before tourism started to head in its direction during the last few years.During the tour you’ll be allowed time for lunch (not included) in a very tipical farmhouse restaurant and of course to visit the main sites of each town. Please consider that spending a long time in each of the towns will mean that you’ll be able to have shorter visits in the other towns.At the end of the tour the driver will take you back to your ship.The tour will be a total of 9 hours from pick up to drop off.
