The transfer by private car will take about 1 hour and 30 minutes. You will travel on the A1 highway, making a stop for a coffee break.

Orvieto is located high, on a tuff cliff surrounded by the countryside of the Province of Terni. This natural scenery is one of the most evocative in the Italian peninsula. From a distance, the city appears like a mirage in an emerald desert. You will leave your rented vehicle and chauffeur waiting for you at the station, because it isn’t possible to reach the historical center by car. You will reach the top of the height by cable railway (325 meters AMSL), where the city stands. While going up, you will pass through the wonderful gardens of the Albornoz Fortress (1359, rebuilt in 1449).

You’ll begin your Tour in Orvieto crossing the avenue to the left of the cable railway station. You will come across the Pozzo di S. Patrizio (St. Patrick’s Well), one of the most characteristic places in Orvieto. It was built in the 16th century by Antonio da Sangallo the Younger at the behest of Pope Clement VII, who found shelter in the Umbrian city after the Sack of Rome (1527). About 60 m deep, the well has two concentric spiral staircases consisting of 248 steps and illuminated by seventy large windows that go down till the bridge placed above the water. You’ll be able to experience going down the tuff well and make a wish: St. Patrick will make it come true!

Thanks to its strategic position, Orvieto was chosen first by the Etruscans and then by the Romans as a defensive fortress. Etruscology enthusiasts will be able to visit the Faina Civic Museum, one of the world’s most important collections of archaeological findings. Gold jewelry, pottery, vessels, amphorae, and even a marble statue portraying a female figure, know as “Venere di Cannicella” (5th century BC), material entirely discovered in the Orvietan territory.

You will continue the Orvieto tour with a visit at the Duomo, a masterpiece of Gothic art designed by the architect Lorenzo Maitani. During the Middle Ages, by swearing allegiance to the Church and offering hospitality to the Pope, Orvieto became more and more beautiful and rich in monuments, palaces, churches. In 1263 with the Miracle of Bolsena, Pope Urban IV started the construction work of the most important building in the city: the Cathedral. The building work started in 1290 and lasted three centuries. The facade made of polychrome marbles, decorated with statues, mosaics, and low-reliefs, is surmounted by a wonderful central rose window, a work by Andrea Orcagna. The interior, in black and white stripes like the external sides, is rich in artistic masterpieces, among which the frescoes by Luca Signorelli (1499-1504) in the Chapel of the Madonna di San Brizio and the precious reliquary created by Ugolino di Vieri (1338), carried in procession during the festivity of the Corpus Domini.

The tour continues at Palazzo Soliano or Palace of the Popes, a Gothic building to the right of the Duomo.

Siena and Pisa Tour

Your personal driver will collect you from Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) Airport in Rome and take you on a tour of Siena and Pisa, two wonderful Tuscan cities of art. During the drive to Siena on the A1 highway, you can stop and have a coffee break at an Autogrill. The drive is about 2 hours and 40 minutes. Siena is situated on three hills in the center of Tuscany, and between three rivers, the Arbia, Elsa and Merse. As you approach the city you will see the beautiful terracotta color of the rooftops and will follow the medieval walls that circle the city. The road that takes you from Rome to Siena leads you to Porta Romana. The doors that enter the city walls are Porta Camollia leading towards Florence and Porta San Marco heading towards Grosseto. Siena was at the height of its importance in 1260 with the victory of the Battle of Montaperti, where the Sienese defeated the Florentines. This important historic fact about the Tuscan city is the theme to Dante Alighieri’s X° Canto of The Inferno. It is said that the Palio of Siena, the city’s most important event that occurs on the 16th of August (Palio dell’Assunta) and the 2nd of July (Palio to honor the Madonna of Provenzano) was born as a celebration of thanks to the Virgin for this victory. The Palio is a horserace in which the jockeys, dressed in medieval clothes, ride bareback around the Piazza del Campo. After a period of decline and intense fighting between the nobles of the city, the Consiglio dei Nove (Council of Nine) was established in 1287 and remained in power until 1355. During this period some of the most important monuments were created, which you can take the time to explore. Above all, you should visit the Piazza del Campo where the Palio takes place. This square was built at the foot of the three hillsides in a fishbone pattern and its beautiful redbrick pavement is divided into nine sections. The Palazzo Pubblico (town hall), constructed between the XIII and XIV centuries, is located in the piazza and contains the Comune and the Museo Civico. The numerous rooms of these buildings house frescoes painted by artists from the Sienese School: Duccio da Buoninsegna, Ambrogio and Piero Lorenzetti and Simone Martini. Of particular importance are the Maestà(Virgin Enthroned) and the Guidoriccio da Fogliano that can be found in the Great Council Hall (Sala del Mappamondo). In front of the Palazzo Pubblico is the Fonte Gaia (Fountain of Joy), decorated with bas-reliefs—copies of the originals sculpted by Jacopo della Quercia that are now kept in the Palazzo Pubblico. The magnificent Torre del Mangia, 102 meters high, can be seen on the right side of the Palazzo. From the courtyard you can climb to the top of the tower and admire the magnificent panorama of the city and the hills that surround it. From the Piazza del Campo, travelling along the Via di Città and then the Via Capitano, you arrive in the Piazza del Duomo. The cathedral (1150-1376) has a beautiful facade of white, greenish-black and red marble in the Roman-Gothic floral style. Inside it contains several important works of art, including statues by Michelangelo, Bernini, Donatello, as well as the pulpit constructed by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, and their assistant Arnolfo di Cambio. The bell tower, Campanile (1317-1325), is a work of exceptional quality, and the Fonte Battesimale (baptismal font) is decorated with bronze images by Donatello, Ghiberti and Jacopo della Quercia. For lunch you can enjoy Sienese specialties in a restaurant or osteria in the city center. After lunch we leave for a two-hour drive towards Pisa. Arriving at Pisa you will drive directly to the city’s most famous attraction: the Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles). Here you will find the symbol of the city, one of the most important artistic buildings in the world: the Torre di Pisa (the Leaning Tower of Pisa). You can visit and climb the tower in order to admire the city from above. The Campo dei Miracoli was the heart of the religious life for the people of Pisa. Not only does it have the leaning tower, or campanile (bell tower), but it also contains the Duomo di Santa Maria dell’Assunta (the cathedral), the Battistero di San Giovanni Battista (the baptistery) and the Camposanto (cemetery). The cathedral is a work of art in the Pisan Romanesque style of architecture (1064-1118), luxuriously decorated, and representing the prestige that the former Republic Marinara of Pisa had achieved in the XII century. Inside, the coffered (geometric wood paneled) ceiling is painted in gold and the apse has an impressive mosaic calledCristo in Maestà (Christ in Majesty) completed by San Giovanni da Cimabue in 1302. It miraculously survived the fire of 1595. Take note of the beautiful pulpit that was elaborately carved by Giovanni Pisano (1302-1310). The construction of the Baptistery began in 1152 and is the largest in Italy. Inside you can admire the octagonal font at the heart of the baptistery that was constructed by Guido Bigarelli da Como. In the center of the font is the bronze sculpture of St John the Baptist. Nicola Pisano sculpted the pulpit. The Campo Santo monumentale (monumental cemetery) is Pisa’s antique cemetery. Inside can be found sarcophagi, Roman sculptures, tombs of illustrious people and the remarkable fresco Trionfo della Morte (The Triumph of Death) by Buonamico Buffalmacco that dates from around 1336. You can continue your tour of Pisa by visiting the Piazza dei Cavalieri, (Knight’s Square) which was the political center in medieval times. Here you will find the Palazzo dell’Orologio with its celebrated Torre del Conte Ugolino. The Palazzo della Carovana, which houses the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, was founded by Napoleon in 1810. Here you will also find the Chiesa dell’Ordine dei Cavalieri di Santo Stefano and other celebrated historical buildings. You can then walk along the medieval Borgo Stretto arriving at the Lungarni (the streets that run alongside the banks of the river Arno) and the Ponte di Mezzo (Middle Bridge) over the river Arno. Crossing the bridge you will find the Logge dei Banchi where events such as fairs and gastronomic markets can often be found, as well as festivities at Christmas. You can finish you visit by shopping on the Corso Italia and either return to Rome by rental car or limousine, or stay the night in Pisa.

Assisi Tour

The Perugia and Assisi tour usually starts from Rome-Fiumicino “Leonardo da Vinci” Airport. A driver at your complete disposal will accompany you in your journey to these two wonderful Umbrian cities.

Umbria is the innermost region of Central Italy. Wet by the Tiber and its tributaries, it stands out for the beauty of its hilly landscape. The Ancient Romans, who started their domination in Umbria in 295 BC, reached it by following the Via Flaminia, which crossed the region from Narni to Foligno. From 568 to 1247 Umbria was the seat of the Lombard Duchy of Spoleto, but the region reached its height during the commune and signoria periods.

In the 16th century it became part of the domains of the Pope and, except during the Napoleonic era, it remained so until the Italian Unification.

To reach Assisi, the first stop of the Tour of Assisi and Perugia, you’ll travel on the E45. You’ll have a short coffee break in a roadside restaurant or bar, and then carry on with your journey, which will take about 2 hours and 40 minutes in total.

Assisi is world-famous for the memories of Saint Francis (1182-1226), patron saint of the town, of Italy and of many foreign locations, among which San Francisco in the US. People coming from all over the world go everyday on a pilgrimage to the tomb of the saint, kept in the crypt of the Basilica of Saint Francis, where you can feel a strong mystical-religious atmosphere. The first place of prayer that you’ll visit is the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, which stands where Saint Francis organized the Franciscan Order and where he died on the 3rd October 1226. Inside the magnificent basilica, which was started at the end of 17th century, there’s the “Porziuncola”. The facade was frescoed by the Nazarene painter Friedrich Overbeck in 1830. Close to it: the Cappella del Transito, built where Saint Francis spent his last moments of life.

You’ll continue your Assisi tour traveling in your Transfers Rome private car, from the frazione of Santa Maria degli Angeli toward Assisi, located on the slopes of Monte Subasio. Traveling in the direction of the mountain you’ll notice the majestic walls of the “Sacred Convent” that surround the Franciscan Basilicas. Once on the top, you’ll admire from above the vast plain of the Umbrian Valley. In the historical center you’ll visit: the Duomo, the Romanesque-Gothic Basilica of Saint Clare, which preserves the body of the Saint and the Crucifix of Saint Damian, and finally the Basilica of Saint Francis. The building consists of a crypt, with the tombs of the Saint and some of his followers, and two overlapping churches: the Lower Basilica and the Upper Basilica, famous for its 28 frescoes portraying the Life and Miracles of Saint Francis, painted by Giotto between 1297 and 1300.

After completing your visit to Assisi, you’ll have lunch in a local restaurant (you can ask your driver for advice) to taste typical Umbrian dishes.

In the afternoon, departure for the second stop of the Tour of Assisi and Perugia. The latter is more or less 25 Km from Assisi, so you’ll reach it in about half an hour. Capital City of the region of Umbria, Perugia stands on a hill in the Tiber Valley. It’s an important city of art that preserves remains of Etruscan origin, religious and civil buildings from the Middle Ages and the Pre-Renaissance. The Arch of Augustus (3rd century BC) was the ancient entrance of the Etruscan city. In Piazza IV Novembre you’ll find one of the main monuments of Perugia: the Fontana Maggiore (1275-78). Designed and created by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, the fountain has been receiving water from Mount Pacciano for more than 800 years. Behind it: the imposing Palazzo dei Priori (1293-1443), built between the 13th and the 15th centuries. In Corso Vannucci, you’ll find the decorated portal from which you enter the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria, the most important collection of Umbrian paintings, which includes precious works by Gentile da Fabriano, Beato Angelico, Piero della Francesca, panels by Perugino and Pinturicchio. You’ll complete your visit in Perugia, going through Corso Vannucci, the main street of the city. You’ll be able to buy as souvenirs Deruta Ceramics and delicious Perugian chocolate.
