Orvieto, with its Duomo and astounding array of Medieval and Renaissance religious art, is a sight to behold.Pitigliano, built into "tuff" (volcanic rock), is known as "Little Jerusalem" after its resemblance to the original. Its historical heritage is intact and yours to discover on a walk around town.Immerse yourself in the stunning Tuscan and Umbrian backroads. Enjoy typical Tuscan cuisine in a countryside setting, toasting perhaps with a glass of Orvieto DOC Bianco, Rosso Orvietano or Bianco di Pitigliano! Taste the others in a visit to a local winery.Moving along the 900 foot walkway that leads to the village of Civita di Bagnoregio is like crossing over into a dream. Founded by the Etruscans, this seemingly sequestered village sits, as if on a pedestal, far above the stunning clay hilled valley below.Contact me to plan your private, customized culinary-sightseeing tour in Tuscany together!

Private Day-Trip to Maremma with wine tasting from Civitavecchia's port

This excursion begins next your boat where you will meet an english speaking driver holding the sign with your name. Then you will start the confortable drive in an air conditioned minivan Mercedes towards North, passing the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Your first destination will be the medieval village of Pitigliano which rises dramatically from a tufa ridge as if carved from it, surrounded on all sides by a deep ravine sliced by Etruscan "ways" they call Via Cave where there are interesting tombs and carved churches that you can explore. The village is known as the ‘little jerusalem’. It was a haven for Jews who didn't like the confinement of ghettos in the big cities like Florence and Siena and couldn't move further south into the anti-Semitic Papal States in Lazio. Pitigliano's Jewish Quarter is a must-see. You can explore it on your own. Afterwards you go visiting Sovana, now listed as one of the 'most beautiful villages of Italy' and is a very picturesque village. The village is very simple to explore being essentially one main paved street, and a few small side streets. Your visit to Sovana can start from the ancient Aldobrandeschi’s Fortress. This castle has very ancient origins, certainly dating from Ancient Roman times and probably from the Etruscan period, although the castle we see today dates from a restoration in 1572. After you go for tasting wine at a local renowned vinery not far from Sovana. Over here you can sample some local wines and taste local food and seasonal bruschettas. The landlady will also enrich your wine tasting experience with interesting details about the wine production. After this you go on board for your last destination: The thermal springs waterfall of Saturnia. It is the time for you to soak into the natural hot springs of Saturnia where you can now get some relax for 1 hour. Then you go back to Civitavecchia’s port and the driver will drop you off next your ship.
