Escape the capital for a day, thanks to this tour of Assisi and Orvieto, on the Umbrian hills.
The most genuine Italy to discover, made of small ancient villages, characterized by the religious architecture of Umbria, the wines and food and wine products of Tuscany.
One of the most famous villages in Italy is Assisi, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. The city of San Francesco has a thousand-year history with important Roman, medieval and Renaissance testimonies. Giotto’s construction site has marked the art of central Italy.
Orvieto, a small treasure trove of art, is famous worldwide for its Duomo, a marvel of European Gothic architecture and the Pozzo di San Patrizio, a masterpiece of hydraulic engineering. With a very suggestive definition it has been defined “the tall and strange city”. It is easy to understand it, observing the Umbrian town from below, standing above the tuff cliff below. From a distance, especially at night, it seems suspended in the sky while in the daytime, it appears barely leaning against the clouds.
