Orvieto was built originally in the Etruscan era, and it kept growing throughout the ages.

Among the important sites to visit in Orvieto is the Duomo, one of the most magnificent you’ll ever see.Civita di Bagnoregio: 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 (your expense) in a very tipical farmhouse restaurant and of course to visit the main sites of each town.
