What To Expect

Your day trip from Rome to Orvieto and Assisi starts as you leave the city by coach, heading north along the River Tiber toward the region of Umbria, a picturesque piece of central Italy that neighbors Tuscany. After an approximate 1.5-hour drive, arrive in Orvieto, a hill town that seems to rise dramatically out of the volcanic rock it’s perched on and is known for its long history dating back to the Etruscans.

Explore town on foot, enjoying the Italian charm and passing by many churches, particularly Orvieto Cathedral, a Gothic structure that dates back to the late 1200s and is noted for its stained glass, sculptures and mosaics.

Back on your coach, continue across the rolling landscapes toward Lake Trasimeno, where you’ll stop for lunch. Then head to Assisi, a World Heritage–listed town famed for being the birthplace of St Francis of Assisi, a patron saint of Italy and one of the most legendary figures in religious history.

Take a walking tour of town to see sites related to St Francis’ life, including the stall where he is thought to have been born, his former home and the place where he vowed to dedicate his life to the church. You’ll also learn about Assisi’s other hometown saint, St Clare, one of St Francis’ followers. Visit both the Convent of Santa Chiara, named for her, and the Basilica di San Francesco, dedicated to St Francis, plus see other Assisi sights like Piazza del Comune, Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, the town hall and the Roman Temple of Minerva.

Return to your coach to start the drive from Assisi to Rome, stopping on the way in Santa Maria degli Angeli to visit its 9th-century basilica where St Francis is said to have worshipped. Your day trip ends when you arrive back in Rome.

The best day trip excursion by far! The town's are absolutely beautiful. The guide was patient with my Mom, as she is older and it took her longer to walk (she did keep up). The towns were quaint, the history rich and people in every town welcomed visitors. The local lunch was so delicious and we met some really great folks talking the tour with us as well. Orvieto had wonderful local artisan shops. Assisi was a very rich history and spiritual experience for me personally. The countryside is breathtaking. The tour is highly recommended, my Mother and Sisters totally enjoyed this experience.

Great Tour
Maria_M, Sept 2023
Our guide, Christina and driver, Francesco were wonderful! Christina did an amazing job at giving us wonderful details throughout the entire day. We had plenty of time to see all that Orvieta and Assisi had to offer. Lunch had the most delicious lasagna and their wine was great! The tour guide in Assisi, Simona, was very informative. The history, culture and beauty were captivating. I highly recommend this tour as it includes many sights and history all wrapped up in one day!!!
A great experience
Amparohuaman, Sept 2023

The tour was well...
Claire_G, Sept 2023
The tour was well explained. The meal was a disaster. It was meant to be lasagne but was just layers of pasta with hardly any meat sauce and no bechamel The salad served with the second course was not fresh. It was wilted. There was no dessert or coffee after the meal.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear Kind customer We apologize for your disappointment with lunch , our clients are usually satisfied of it . I'm going to investigate Thank you Kind regards
beautiful day trips from Rome
Catherine_N, Sept 2023
Orvietto is a charming little town that we took a funicular to get to. There is an interesting church there that I wish was part of the tour. I spent the 5 Euros to get in, but it would have been nice to have a guide. My suggestion is to have that included with the tour. Assisi was another charming place. We had a local guide that was excellent. She was informative but also funny. I enjoyed her. What I didn't like about this tour was the lunch spot. Food was meh and they charged for water. Really? Water? The place had no charm even though we were close to a lake. Maybe find a cute little place with a view of something if the food is going to be just okay. Also, our guide that accompanied us all day really did not do much. She didn't share much history or info about places we were visiting or driving past. Also, beware! We left at 7:15am and did not return until about 8:30 pm. Long day!!
Very memorable trip, I will love to do it again
Dije_G, Sept 2023
Although alone, I never felt alone. The lift trip at Orvieto and the magnificent church were very captivating. I love Assisi and and what I read before came alive. Both guides did a wonderful job of bringing to life history. Thanks for the experience, expect me and my family next time!
Christina and our driver...
edgeli_a, Sept 2023
Christina and our driver were both great. We were well taken care of the whole time. It was also very important to us that we were given times for going to the washroom during the trip especially on a bus tour. We also liked that lunch is included so we were able to sit and actually relax and enjoy the food and weren’t rushed.
Viator Day Trip well worth it
Rosanna_R, Aug 2023
Loved the whole day, with both Orvieto and Assisi exceeding my expectations. Cristina our tour guide was fantastic.

Very Historical.... Spiritual... Wonderful Tour!!!
MARLON_O, July 2023
The church in Orvieto is so awesome... walking on the old and narrow streets in Orvieto is a wonderful experience. Assisi is the highlight of the tour....something like a spiritual tour. Our tour guide is knowledgeable. The stories she told us are very interesting especially on St. Francis and St. Clare. Our bus is so futuristic, so comfortable and brand new with huge glass windows where you can easily see the beautiful views during the trip.
The irony of Assisi
Kathleen_K, July 2023
The ride through the countryside with the guide narrating was so interesting. Being in the old town of Orvieto and the chance to walk around and shop was delightful. Lunch was excellent. A good choice. And lastly, seeing Assisi. We did see some irony in the life of Francis and the ornateness of the churches! What would Francis think? I guess the Church just can't help itself!

Buyer Beware
Alyson_M, July 2023
My review is mixed, but unfortunately, the travel experience outweighed the tour itself. First, the meeting spot was easy to find and the tour guide was on time. It was a nice-sized group. We walked to a bus that looked like it was from a third-world country. The rubber was falling off of the steps, it was dirty, the floor was sticky, arm rests were missing from the seats, and there was NO AIR CONDITIONING. It was over 100°F, and although I was reticent to take a 12-hour tour, I thought that the respite of air-conditioning would make it okay. While on the bus, the tour guide appeared knowledgeable and provided a lot of information about the sites that we passed. Unfortunately, unless you were seated in the first two rows, you couldn’t hear her. The bus was loud since all of the windows were open. It was rickety and every bump caused excess noise. Therefore, it was impossible to hear anything, as there was no speaker system. The sites themselves were beautiful, and I would definitely recommend a visit. Lunch was also delicious, but did not even include water (be prepared). We had a different tour guide for Assisi, and fortunately, we were given headsets. Unfortunately, the guide walked fast and was talking about the sites without stopping. Therefore, if you were in the back of the group, you had no idea what she was talking about. I went on 8 tours during my visit, and this was the worse one, although I loved the towns and the scenic drive!

Don't waste time having lunch in the middle of nowhere, time better spent in Assisi.
Roseanne_C, June 2023
The tour leader was dismal, only gave the tour two stars because the guide in Assisi and Assisi were exceptional. The tour leader was making mistakes all the time. Included in this tour was free lunch which at best was mediocre. Worse still, the driver got lost taking us there and we lost precious time from Assisi. We would have preferred to have more free time in Assisi. If this tour had no free lunch and the time spent driving in the middle of nowhere was used instead in Assisi, it would have been ideal. Instead we had to rush through seeing Assisi having wasted time to find a restaurant to have lunch with no choice and was mediocre.
Assisi was great and...

Amazing trip!
Graciela_V, May 2023
We were delighted to have chosen this tour it was beyond our expectations. Cristina the guide was excellent in giving information in two languages, English and Spanish and Portuguese! Great job answering questions. There is a lot of scenic views they are breathtaking. If you have mobility issues I don't recommend it. There is lots of walks and steps. We had the best time ever finished very happy and exhausted 😊. Highly recommend it and would do it again.

Recommended Assisi bus tour from Rome.
Sharon_S, May 2023
Our guide Christina greeted us with such authority and grace and humor that continued through our 13 hour tour to Orvieto and Assisi. She is so knowledgeable and easy to understand. We enjoyed every aspect of our tour. Our bus driver Saldor was also terrific.

Dear Kind Mrs Sharon Thank you for your kind feedback, Cristina will appreciate your comment! :), Thank you very much! Best regards
Rolling Hills and town a feast for the eyes and legs to explore
Kokwei_C, May 2023
An interesting day trip from Rome to see the green rolling hills of Umbria which is a welcoming change. The town of Assisi is the historical birth place of St Francis with a Church dedicated to his legacy. The town buildings are full of character which was built on a hill. The town of Orvieto is smaller but has a peaceful atmosphere and narrow street where we had the best chocolate drink in a cafe. We had an energetic and informative guide, Christina, who makes the trip more lively and enjoyable.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you kind customer for your positive and kind review, for us it is the best reward to know of your satisfaction! Kind regards
Sites Definitely Worth Seeing; Pacing at Assisi could be Improved
Angela_M, Jan 2023
Great tour. The sites are definitely worth seeing! The pace of the Assisi portion of the tour was not ideal. We felt rushed through some of the sites and then had way too much time at the end of the day for self-exploration. We would have preferred to not be so rushed earlier in the day and had less time at the end.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Dear Kind customer thank you for your kind feedback , we will treasure your advice. Have a nice day! Pina
Do it!
Kyle_L, Jan 2023
Tour guides and driver were fantastic! The guides ability to switch from English to Spanish and Portuguese was flawless! We hit the highlights at each spot. Lunch reviews are generally unfavorable on here but it was good, although not to common taste. My only complaint is we could have spent an entire day in Orvieto and 2-3 days in Assissi. Both were absolutely stunning and so worth the trip.
