Day 1 – Travel to and Explore Bevagna, Overnight in Bevagna
Your mini-tour from Rome with a private driver guide begins with a trip to Bevagna. After check-in at an elegant hotel, you will enjoy a guided stroll of this walled city and learn about its ancient origins. There are many historic sights of interest here, including the church of the Madonna of the Snow, built on the ruins of a Roman temple, and an ancient Roman bathhouse featuring mosaics depicting assorted sea creatures. Afterwards, you will have free time for self-exploration.
 
Day 2 – Tour of Orvieto with Wine Tasting, Transfer back Rome

This morning you will stop and tour Orvieto, an ancient Umbrian hill town dramatically situated atop volcanic tufa rock.  Your tour of this charming medieval town features a beautiful Gothic cathedral and chapel where pilgrims and art lovers alike come to see Luca Signorelli's colorful frescoes vividly depicting the Apocalypse. 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, for example. If interested, we can arrange a special guided tour of Underground Orvieto.
Orvieto is also famous for its museums, ceramics, and wines (most notably the Orvieto Classico.) You will have time for a visit to a winery with wine tasting. After your exploration of Orvieto, your driver guide will take your back to Rome.
