Tour Overview Tour Overview

Leave the hustle and bustle of busy Rome and enjoy an off-the-beaten track glorious Umbria tour. Travelling comfortably with a local expert driver-escort in an air-conditioned Mercedes (or similar make) vehicle you'll visit two emblematic towns of the region: Assisi - Unesco heritage site and birthplace of St. Francis and Perugia - a culinary delight and hometown of Perugina chocolate factory. Last but not least, you will enjoy a unique winery experience featuring sensory wine analysis and tasting of local umbrian labels.

Our Rome to Umbria day trip starts with pick up at your accommodation in Rome. As you travel comfortably towards Umbria our English speaking driver-escort will provide commentary along the way. The first stop will be in Perugia - the capital of the region. Explore the medieval streets of the Old Town and take a picture at Piazza IV Novembre in front of Fontana Maggiore - this square is more than 2500 years old! Take a stroll on Corso Vanucci - the main pedestrian tourist route of the town and don't forget to visit "Augusta Perusia" chocolaterie and pastry shop to taste local creations!

Your next stop on this Umbria tour from Rome will be in Assisi - known to pilgrims from all over the world, this umbrian hilltown located beneath the summit of Monte Subasio will enchant you with its maze of medieval streets. The birthplace of Saint Francis - one of saint patrons of Italy, this hilltown is home to the papal Basilica of St. Francis and to Basilica of Santa Chiara - dedicated to the founder of the Order of Poor Ladies. On our Florence to Assisi day trip enjoy some free time and lunch (at your own expense). If you feel like it you can also climb to Rocca Maggiore to admire unique views of the surrounding hills.

Then in the afternoon, to conclude your Umbria tour from Rome, you will stop at a local organic winery located near Assisi. Be a winemaker for a day and enjoy a sensory analysis of wine, learn about the process of wine making and taste five local labels accompanied by bruschettas, olive oil, cold cuts and cheeses before returning to Rome.
