Starting in the morning at your hotel where you are met by your private driver, a private day trip from Rome to Assisi and Orvieto will take you to the religious city of Assisi in the footsteps of Saint Francis and the Umbrian hill town of Orvieto.

Your personal expert local guide will show you Orvieto, an Etruscan hill town set on a tufa hill and created by the Etruscans, where remnants of their ancient civilization can still be seen today as you walk through the town's winding streets.

While strolling through the center, you may see Renaissance and Medieval palaces. An illustration of the daily lives of the residents from Etruscan times can be found in the Orvieto underground caverns.

You may observe the spectacular Assumption of the Virgin Mary-themed Gothic church from the 14th century in Orvieto's central piazza. The magnificent façade embellished with valuable, colorful mosaics is a spectacular specimen of gothic architecture.

Your tour continues with a visit to Assisi, a sacred city, where Saint Francis was born and where he established the order of Friars Minor known as the Franciscans, following along the footsteps of the saint with the assistance of your own guide.

With your chosen private guide, take a walking tour of Assisi while following in the paths of Saint Francis. Visit the magnificent Basilica of Saint Francis, whose interiors were frescoed by Cimabue, Giotto, and other late medieval painters, and which Pope Innocent IV dedicated in 1253.

The Basilic consists of the Upper Church, the Lower Church, and the crypt in neo-Romanesque design, where St. Francis' grave has been located since 1818.

Visit the Santa Maria degli Angeli Basilica to see the Porziuncola preserved inside. The most important location for Franciscans is a chapel made of precious stones that St. Francis personally restored. This chapel represents the location where St. Francis first realized his calling.

Your private Assisi and Orvieto Tour ends with the return back at your hotel in Rome.
