Civitavecchia Shore Excursion to Orvieto and Bagnoregio, leaves from your ship at 8:00am.

You will drive about 75 minutes east of Civitavecchia arriving to the Umbria region for your first stop.

Orvieto, perched on a upland of tufa rock (soft volcanic rock) that was once an island in the sea that covered the Paglia valley below.  Here you will have time to explore one of the finest cathedrals in Italy, a gem of Gothic architecture, and take a 45 minutes guided tour of the underground city with its winding tunnels and Etruscan relics allowing you to explore 3000 years of history by following the ancient passageways, stairs and hidden rooms. Another important site is St. Patrick’s well built on the orders of Pope Clement VII who sought refuge here during the sacking of Rome: this 203 feet deep well boasts double spiralled staircases for easier access to the water.

After exploring this charming town with amazing views you will head to Civita Bagnoregio, an almost deserted town accessible only by a foot bridge. With only 25-50 inhabitants it reminds you of a ghost town. Here you can stroll the narrow streets and marvel at the existence of a place where time stopped several hundreds of years ago. You will also be able to enjoy a visit to an ancient olive oil press, originally built by the Etruscans from this area.

This tour will take you back in time and allow you to explore the unique history of this fascinating area, and at the end you will drive back to your ship with a comfortable 90 minutes ride.

The tour itinerary shown above is conducted by an English speaking driver who has been trained to give a tour along the route. They will share their knowledge and passion for the area, stop for the best photo opportunities and point out the places of interest. Your driver is not allowed by Italian law to guide you around the historical areas, monuments and towns where you stop.

The tour itinerary for shore excursions is based on cruise ships arriving in at, or before 08:30 and sailing at, or after 6:30pm.

For ships that sail before 6:30pm please email us first so we can work out the changes to the itinerary to fit your ships schedule before setting up the tour. We will then add the changes to the notes section for fellow cruisers to read before they join the group.

We always base the tour itinerary around the ships schedule with number one priority to get you back to the port 1.5 / 2 hours before sail time.
