Continue to the historic center of Orvieto for a visit on foot of this enchanting town. At the end, we suggest a fantastic aperitif in the center of Orvieto, at the Oleoteca Bartolomei, a meeting point to share and spread the culture of olive oil. A cozy place near the famous Duomo, with an old stone mill, where you can eat, like a table.

Make yourself comfortable: bruschettine, specialties in oil, will delight your palate!

As an alternative for families or the curious Orvieto Underground: a pleasant guided tour that winds along a very easy path that allows you to know the underground of Orvieto, made by the ancient inhabitants in about 2500 years of uninterrupted excavations. A one-hour trip to discover a thousand-year-old, surprising and unexpected "Underground City".

 2nd DAY: CASTIGLIONE DEL LAGO

After breakfast, destination Castiglione del Lago, characteristic town of Lake Trasimeno. Since 7 February 2006 Lake Trasimeno has officially joined the world association Living Lakes, a borderless network that protects and protects the lake ecosystems of each country that stand out for their significant historical, cultural and landscape interest. The association includes 41 lakes all over the world, such as Vittoria, Titicaca, Balaton, Dead Sea, and Trasimeno, which, unique in Italy, has recently been added to the ranks.

So a day dedicated to discovering the lake!

We suggest the ferry tour of the islands, leaving the car in San Feliciano to catch one of the early morning ferries to Polvese Island. After visiting the Isola Polvese (which takes about 2-4 hours), take the ferry back to San Feliciano and go to Castiglione del Lago. Situated on a promontory overlooking Lake Trasimeno, Castiglione del Lago is one of the most beautiful villages of district of Lake Trasimeno.
