Let Rome Tours Your Way take you on a tour of the highlights of Umbria: Assisi, Spoleto, Orvieto, and Montefalco. Enjoy tasting and learning about the fine wine of Orvieto and Montefalco, and roam the hill-crest streets of Assisi and Spoleto.

Day 1 - Travel to Spoleto, Overnight in Spoleto

You will make an early morning departure from Rome to arrive in Spoleto. After checking in to an elegant four-star hotel, you will have a private walking tour of Spoleto. A beautiful Roman town built atop a mountain, Spoleto boasts many important Roman structures including its stone wall, theater and bridge. The town is also known for its 14th century fortress.  You will have free time for self-exploration after your guided tour of Spoleto.

Day 2 – Tours of Assisi and Montefalco with Wine Tasting, Overnight in Spoleto

Today a local expert tour guide for Assisi will take you on a guided tour of Assisi, the hometown of St. Francis, patron saint of the animals. Your guided tour of spectacular Assisi, built up the steep slopes of Mount Subasio, includes the tomb and Basilica of St. Francis, famous for Giotto's brilliant frescoes depicting the saint's life.  You will also travel through time through Assisi’s various historical sites, from the Temple of Minerva and Piazza del Comune, both built two millennia ago, to a 13th-century church called Chiesa di Santa Chiara. 
Next your driver guide will take you the historic town of Montefalco, known for its fine wines. You will have a chance to sample some of the town’s well-known vintages such as Sagrantino. You can also tour some of Montefalco’s beautiful churches, which cover the Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance styles. The beautifully-frescoed church of San Francesco has been converted to the town's museum, offering an extensive collection of art and artifacts from Umbria.

Day 3 - Tour in Orvieto, Transfer back Rome

This morning you will stop in Orvieto, an ancient Umbrian hill town dramatically situated atop volcanic tufa rock. Our guided 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 Underground guided tours operated by the local tourist office are available, if interested. 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.  Orvieto is also famous for its museums, ceramics, and wines (most notably the Orvieto Classico.)  After your exploration of Orvieto, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Rome.
