Begin your full-day excursion by making your way to your meeting location at Largo della Pace in Civitavecchia and boarding your transfer vehicle to head in the direction of the province of Viterbo's capital, which bears the same name. Continue your scenic excursion as your transportation whisks you away to the town of Civita di Bagnoregio, where you'll get to explore the Dying City as you cross a 300-meter (984-foot) bridge that connects this ancient city to the rest of the world. The small town of Bagnoregio drew attention away from this historic city, sparking its decline. But a major earthquake in the 17th-century forced city officials to move Bagnoregio to a new location, which further advanced the old town's decline. Today, the Dying City stands as a rocky hill surrounded by stunning Tuscan landscapes, making for a great photo opportunity with breathtaking views.
Next, head to a historic city that dates back to the era of the Etruscans with a stop at Orvieto. Here, you'll get to witness the intricate craftsmanship of a hidden underground city that boasts over 1,200 caves featuring nearly 3,000-year-old carved wells and tunnels. Take in the stunning views of the Duomo di Orvieto (Orvieto Cathedral) and the intricate detail of its Italian Gothic-style architecture that feature large bronze doors, golden mosaics, and a rose window. Before heading back to your port, you'll also get a chance to whet your palate with a cup of Italian espresso and delight in a delectable Italian lunch like a Porchetta sandwich or authentic Italian Pizza.
From strolling through a historic town's medieval central district to dining on delicious Italian dishes, this epic tour offers much for history buffs to see and do. Reserve your spot on this cultural excursion today for a memorable time in Tuscany!
