    Discover Orvieto and its Vineyards: A Day Trip from Rome

Discover Orvieto and its Vineyards: A Day Trip from Rome

  • City: Orvieto
  • Duration: Approximately 9.5 hours

Overview

If you want to spend a day far from the hustle and bustle of Rome, discover authentic and original places off the beaten path, and taste some great white wines, Orvieto is the destination for you! This ancient Etruscan town is located in the beautiful Umbrian countryside, less than a two-hour drive from Rome. As you approach Orvieto in your air-conditioned car, you will be regaled with a distant view of the city perched high on the Rupe, the near-vertical cliffs made of volcanic tufa stone.

Once there, you will meet your guide to begin exploring this magnificent little town. You will walk through the narrow, cobblestone streets and learn all about Orvieto's long and illustrious past. One of its most prized monuments is the 14th-century Duomo with an ornate facade glittering with gold mosaics: here you can clearly see the transition from its Romanesque start to its Gothic finish. Inside there are many stunning frescoes by some of Italy's most renowned painters like Fra Angelico and Luca Signorelli.

After touring the town of Orvieto, your driver will take you to the La Carraia Winery to taste some of the area's best wines; for example, Orvieto Classico DOC. Not everybody knows that since the Middle Ages, Orvieto's white wines have been praised far and wide. A tour of the cellars, vineyards, and a guided tasting is followed by lunch at Zeppelin Restaurant, back in the center of Orvieto. Chef Lorenzo's menu features authentic local dishes like handmade pastas, wild boar, and vegetables grown in the restaurant's own garden.

Last but not least, you will visit Orvieto's Underground, a whole other city underneath the main city that was carved into the friable tufa stone over the course of 2,500 years. You will find wells and cisterns, as well as quarries, cellars, passageways, and rooms with many square niches. As you walk through these tunnels, you will travel through time, witnessing the way of life of people from Etruscan times to the Renaissance.
