Description

The clifftop town of Orvieto is home to one of Italy’s most striking cathedrals and known for its excellent wine. With this shore excursion, skip the hassle of organizing your own transportation and visit the town’s highlights with ease. Enjoy free time to explore the historic center both above and below ground before heading to a local winery to sample up to four wines paired with local delicacies.

Features of this “Orvieto Small group wine and Countryside”:

  • Pick-up & drop off at the port
  • Panoramic drive: Discover the rich beauty of the Etruscan countryside on your way to the town of Orvieto
  • Farmhouse: Sample up to 4 of the famous local wines, accompanied by local products like bruschetta, ham and other typical snacks.

This tour is perfect for those who wish to take in the flavors and history of Etruscan Italy and enjoy the taste of typical Italian products.

Upon leaving the port, travel for approximately one hour in comfortable transportation, drive along the country roads through the lush landscapes for an hour ride before reaching Orvieto.

Orvieto is perched on a plateau of Tufo rock (soft volcanic rock) that was once an island in the sea that covered the Paglia valley below. Here you will have time to explore one of the finest Duomos in Italy, a gem of Gothic architecture and take an hour-long tour of the underground city with its winding tunnels and Etruscan artifacts. This tour allows you to explore 3000 years of history by following the ancient passageways, tunnels, stairs and hidden rooms. Another important stop is St. Patrick's Well. Commissioned by Pope Clement VII who sought refuge here during the sack of Rome, these 203 feet deep well boasts double spiraled staircases for easier access to the water. You will have approximately 2 hours to walk around on your own.

Leaving Orvieto you will then visit one of the local wineries where you can experience the ancient and high-quality Etruscan-Umbrian wine and oil. The mountains protecting the vineyards from wind encourages the mild climate combined with the region's volcanic soil provides the grapes grown here with a distinct flavor. Visit a local wine-producing facility and enjoy a taste of local specialties and traditionally produced wines each with a distinct characteristic. You will also be tasting homemade bread dripping with local virgin olive oil. Your full day in the picturesque countryside will be one of the highlights of your trip, where you will be making memories for years to come to sign up today and reserve your spot.
