Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio.
If you like medieval settings blended with ancient history dating back to several centuries before Christ, Roman invasions, Papal States, renaissance and one of most renowned traditions for its typical cuisine and specialties, thick fully bodied wines, truffles, cold cuts, cheeses and art, saints and miracles, this tour would really make your day. Orvieto is famous for its Duomo, the Cathedral built across 3 centuries, was the Papal seat for a few years, so they still have a papal palace. Being an Etruscan city founded in the VII century b.C. they have an impressive underground system with tunnels and dungeons you can visit. Umbria region is home to some of the best Italian wines like the Sagrantino di Montefalco. Half an hour drive from Orvieto is Civita di Bagnoregio, hometown to Saint Bonaventure and known as the “Dying City”. In fact Civita is built on top of a tufa (lava stone) hill, extremely friable, so that it was declared unsafe and when the final stretch of rock slid down it stayed isolated until a pedestrian bridge was built in 1966. It has now been stabilized and is a very unique place to see, not so crowded in the winter, due to an extremely little population of 11 total! But so lively in the summer, with alleyways snaking through little houses, a few restaurants, a main square with a nice church and such a magic setting with breathtaking views on the surrounding countrysides.
