A fast drive down Autostrada del Sole through Umbria and Tuscany brings you to Civita di Bagnoregio. Here you can see San Bonaventura Cave and the Franciscan Monk Convent (Civita). Then, after parking the Van, we will walk through a bridge direction to the magic small village of Civita where 30/40 people live throughout the year. Such friendly people, small bars, and local products, handmade vimini containers and limited wine and olive oil production will capture you eyes and your heart! After this visit we will drive towards Orvieto where an underground Tour in English is offered. 
If the “superficial” aspect of the city has changed over time, the hypogean structures that were functional to it have remained, mostly, intact. 
The guided tour of “Orvieto Underground” is therefore, the most suitable tool to get in touch with this new, very unusual cultural aspect of a city extremely wealthy in history and having artistic “jewels”. Step by step, mysterious and fascinating echoes tell of Etruscan Velzna, while phantoms of the medieval and Renaissance city appear out of the damp shadows.
The beautiful Orvieto Cathedral facade is the best decorated in the world and inside you’ll see the Luca Signorelli “Sistine Chapel” ….yes, because Michelangelo, before starting to paint it, went to Orvieto to admire how Luca Signorelli painted Heaven and Hell into the Orvieto Cathedral! (entry fees cost 7 Euros per person).
For lunch, the Foresi Cantina will offer you a great wine tasting and local products like Truffles and Porcini Mushroom Cheese, bruschetta and a social homemade sauce.
 Giacomini Porcelain and Ceramics store has a beautiful variety of vases, dishes, potteries handmade by the Giacomini Family since 100 years.
