Your LivTours Bomarzo & Orvieto Day Trip from Rome starts when your private driver meets you at your central Rome hotel. Your professional driver will greet you with a welcoming smile as he whisks you into the countryside in comfort and style to your first destination – Bomarzo. Should you wish, you can upgrade your day, for an additional cost, by adding on the company of an expert LivTours guide to give more in-depth explanations or simply enjoy the anecdotes and explanations of the private chauffeur!
Bomarzo | Park of Monsters
Your first stop is the charming town of Bomarzo in the region of Lazio. Bomarzo is a small town, but has a big reputation due to the special park commissioned by Pier Francesco Orsini and created by Pirro Ligorio. The larger-than-life statues of “monsters” give it the common name of Park of the Monsters. You will have time to stroll through the fantasy-like gardens, respected by the international art community, and have seen visitors like the surrealist, Salvador Dali.
Orvieto | From Medieval to Etruscan Treasures
Once you have finished exploring the Park of the Monsters, your driver will be waiting to take you to another charming town, this time a medieval one – Orvieto. It is a quick drive through the lush and vibrant greenery of the Italian countryside that takes you to Orvieto. Once you have arrived, it is time to stroll through the medieval streets admiring the gorgeous medieval architecture, a type of architecture missing from Rome. The town’s cathedral, known in Italian as the Duomo, carries the full title of Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta and is an absolutely gorgeous example of 13th-century architecture. This architectural wonder even inspired the great Michelangelo!
This city is so well preserved that LivTours recommends it as a must-see to all visitors on an Italian vacation. You might think the Middle Ages was a long time ago, but try casting your mind back to over 3,000 years when the Etruscans lived in this area. You will have the chance to discover the mysteries hidden deep below the modern section of the city and visit the intricate underground tunnel systems created by early Etruscans!
