Enjoy a private tour of Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio. This shore excursion from Civitavecchia features a private tour of Orvieto, a medieval Umbrian hill town dramatically situated atop volcanic tufa rock. You’ll first stop at Orvieto’s beautiful Gothic cathedral and chapel, where pilgrims and art lovers alike come to see Luca Signorelli's colorful frescoes vividly depicting the Apocalypse, among other unique relics. 
 
Orvieto is just as interesting below ground as it is above, with Etruscan and medieval caves, and the underground remains of an old olive press.  You will explore 3,000 years of history by following some of these ancient passageways, tunnels, stairs and hidden rooms. Orvieto is also famous for its museums, ceramics, and wines (most notably the Orvieto Classico). 
 
Next you will also tour the village of Civita di Bagnoregio in Lazio.  Founded by the Etruscans over 2,500 years ago, this town has seen its population dwindle to just 25 residents, earning its unfortunate nickname “the dying town.” You will walk across a 900-foot-long bridge to reach this earthquake-prone village, only accessible by foot.
 
On your way back to Civitavecchia, you will stop and view the spectacular Lake Bolsena and visit the church of San Flaviano.
