Private Bomarzo & Orvieto Day Trip from Rome
LivTours Private Bomarzo & Orvieto Day Trip from Rome is an exciting day out of Rome and gives you the chance to see another side of Italy. On this private full-day tour, you will visit the “Park of Monsters” located in Bomarzo. This gem just outside of Rome, has been described as a Renaissance-like Disneyland. Mythological and fantastical sculptures fill the 16th-century gardens and will leave you breathless. Bomarzo is a small town with a population of fewer than 2000 people but is world renown due to its very special park, the Park of the Monsters. These slightly surrealistic sculptures are more fantasy-like than scary, creating an almost abstract atmosphere so uncommon in small Italian towns.
Nearby you will find the stunning town of Orvieto that has a rich Etruscan history with underground tunnels. This small town offers stunning Medieval architecture, something that Rome does not offer. Its amazing cathedral, the Duomo, is well worth the visit. Between towns, you will have a chance to enjoy a traditional Italian meal while enjoying the stunning lush countryside of Umbria. You will travel in luxury via a private chauffeured car and enjoy the comfort of a climate-controlled ride throughout your day!

Bomarzo | Park of Monsters
Your first stop is the charming town of Bomarzo in the region of Lazio. Bormarzo is a small town but has a big reputation due to the very special park commissioned by Pier Francesco Orsini and created by Pirro Ligorio. The larger-than-life statues of “monsters”, giving 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

It is just 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 even 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.

A very nice day trip from Rome
"Our day trip from Rome to Bomarzo and Orvieto was very enjoyable. A chauffeur picked us up from our hotel and took us first to the unique sculpture park in Bomarzo. From there we went on to Orvieto, which is a very lovely hilltop town with history that begins 3000 years ago with the Etruscans. The lunch was all local cuisine and absolutely delightful. We enjoyed every minute of our day!"
