If you choose Orvieto, you will have some time for shopping for products made from olive trees or for ceramics both of which are typical in this region. Sample some of their local eats and as you explore the town you will see plenty of unique local artisans. On Thursdays there is also a farmer's market that brings a unique energy to the town. If you are not much of a shopper then we suggest you use your free time to do the tour the underground caves of the city and learn about how they have been used by the Etruscan's throughout the centuries. Either way, you will want not want to miss a short visit to the duomo in the heart of this charming village.
Civita remains a testimonial to the challenges and the ingenuity of medieval life. Prepare to step back in time 1000 years as you cross the foot bridge over the ravine to this magical "Ghost Village" of Civita di Bagnoregio. Once you arrive to the top you will have the most breathtaking views of the region below. Rick Steve’s guide-book considers this village to be one of the most amazing places in the country and this tiny town is inhabited by about 50 locals. There are several shops to browse through and an abundance of little winding paths and corners that lead to more vistas. All of these are sure to create beautiful photography opportunities; a real photo lovers galore!
Depending on your tastes and budget your driver guide is happy to arrange lunch in either location you have chosen.

You will have 3.5 hours in either Orvieto or Civita and following lunch we will start back out on the road again to arrive to your destination by about 4:30pm
