Upon arriving in Rome, you’ll pick up your rental car and drive to Orvieto in the Umbria region—about an hour and a half away. Orvieto is a majestic hilltop town overlooking the Umbrian plains. Enjoy a guided sightseeing tour through this historic gem of a city. You’ll visit the cathedral, a medieval masterpiece of art and architecture. The facade is decorated with beautiful mosaics, while the interior looks like a jewelry box. Some of the highlights include the gold reliquary and the Chapel of Saint Brizio featuring Luca Signorelli’s magnificent Renaissance frescoes. You’ll also visit the 12th century Palazzo del Popolo, a civic building made from the local volcanic rock.
After the guided tour, transfer from Orvieto to the tiny hamlet of Torgiano near Perugia. Check in to your hotel, a luxurious historic mansion surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. This 5-star accommodation has an excellent restaurant. Enjoy a delicious dinner at the hotel’s restaurant and a peaceful night’s sleep.
