Private Tour: Assisi Day Trip from Rome

Depart from Rome in early morning and head for the gentle Umbrian hills. Cross the lush Tiber valley and pass along the Via Flaminia, once a major Roman road. Look out for medieval villages, including Orte and Deruta, which are scattered throughout the green countryside.Upon arrival, take a walking tour around the lanes of the quiet UNESCO World Heritage-listed town. As you walk, your English speaking driver will explain the significance of the town's churches and attractions, and their connections to the treasured Italian patron saint, St Francis of Assisi. Discover why the saint is held in such high esteem, and find out where he is believed to have been born and where he spent his early childhood. Stop to explore the Church of Santa Chiara, which is dedicated to another Catholic saint from Assisi who was a contemporary and protégé of St Francis.Marvel at the beauty of the picture-perfect town square, Piazza del Commune, which is dominated by a 13th-century palace, known as Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo. Visit the nearby Roman Temple of Minerva and Assisi's Basilica di San Francesco. The interior here is embellished with remarkable medieval frescoes, many of which depict scenes from the life of St Francis.In the middle of the day, grab a bite to eat at your leisure (own expense). Afterward, continue on to the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, another popular pilgrimage site near Assisi. See the scared Porziuncola chapel, which was restored by St Francis, and view the site where St Francis died.In late afternoon, travel back to Rome, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.

Pozzo della Cava Admission Ticket

A visit to underground Orvieto cannot exclude the exploration of the suggestive path of the Pozzo della Cava that, in the heart of the Medieval district, will carry you down into the cliff through an array of caves rich in archaeological findings. You will go through all the ages that made the history of Orvieto and, by visiting some of the caves, you will learn the extent to which the life of Orvieto's inhabitants included feverish activities carried out in the underground city. From Etruscan times to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the modern Slow-City, this unusual walk will allow you to discover interesting evidence spanning over centuries and centuries of daily life. Along the tunnels of this structure, going from one evocative spot to another, you will come across a follone for wool processing in the Middle Ages; an Etruscan tunnel for channelling water; an Etruscan tank in opus signinum; two Medieval pits, one flask-shaped the other vertical, the two varieties that are known so far; a typical Medieval cellar completely dug out of the tufa rock for the production and storage of Orvieto's famous wine; a tufa rock pillar, part of the foundations of a Medieval tower; a kiln used as a ceramic workshop in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, with remains of the baking oven dug out of the tufa rock from Orvieto's cliff; kiln waste, majolica fragments, sixteenth century lusterware to confirm the continuous activities of ceramists in Orvieto and, particularly interesting, some work tools; the remains of the lower chamber of a muffola-shaped kiln, that was used to produce lusterware, valuable Renaissance ceramic items famous for their iridescent colours and beautiful reflections, that allow us to place Orvieto with Gubbio, Gualdo Tadino and Deruta as far as this particular production is concerned; a large quarry that gave the tufa rock used to build the great wall that supports the road above it (Via Malabranca) in the nineteenth century. Of course, you will also admire the actual Pozzo della Cava, identified outside by a small modern stone tip located underneath the entrance arch to the underground complex where the original well head used to be.
