Our day begins with CIVITA DI BAGNOREGIO, one of the most impressive towns of the area.
Perched on top of a hill among the valleys formed by Chiaro and Torbido streams, Civita appears clinged to the edge of a cliff where it dominates the wide desolated valley made up of calanchi.
Dated back to the Etruscan period and rebuilt it in the Medieval time, it is nowadays an enchanted place, where time seems to have stopped. The small number of all year round inhabitants and the complete absence of cars makes the atmosphere inside Civita even more unreal.
At lunchtime, we will arrive at a nice family farm where the owner will be proud to show you his beautiful wine cellar and his traditional oil mill.
Delicious light lunch in the farm, based on traditional and local recipes, good quality wines and excellent Extra virgin olive oil produced by this nice family that has been active for generations!
Afterwards, enjoy a walk through the Medieval alleys of ORVIETO.
Orvieto is a charming Medieval town situated on a volcanic cliff. The origins of Orvieto go back to the Etruscan civilization but the town reached the top of its development during the Middle Ages when its inhabitants started the fervent work of erecting palaces and holy buildings among which the very famous Cathedral stands out, undoubtedly the main monument of the city.
