Assisi and Orvieto Day Trips From Rome

Assisi and Orvieto Day Trips From Rome

Take a break from the bustle of Rome to visit two of Umbria's most important hill towns: Assisi and Orvieto. From learning about the world of St. Francis in Assisi to checking out the gorgeous Gothic cathedral of Orvieto, here are your options.

Group Tours

Relax on the roughly two–hour drive from Rome into the Umbrian hills of Italy as you make your way to Assisi and the UNESCO–listed Orvieto on a cost-effective group tour. Both towns are connected to the Italian rail network, but getting there by road can be easier and faster—especially when you travel with a group and a knowledgeable local is behind the wheel. Enjoy visits to the spectacular Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Orvieto Cathedral and take time to stroll the cities' narrow streets. Your tour may even include lunch at a lakeside restaurant.

Private Tours

Taking a private tour of Assisi and Orvieto means you'll get personalized attention from your guide. It also means you can focus on the sights and attractions in each town that really capture your interest. Get an in-depth understanding of Orvieto and Assisi’s religious history on a visit with a theologist tour guide, choose a Gothic architecture–themed itinerary, or perhaps ask to see Assisi's Santa Maria degli Angeli and Basilica di Santa Chiara.
