Day 1) ROME-ORIVETO - SIENA

Meeting with our guide and minibus in the hotel lobby of Hotel Cicerone, Rome, at 08.30. Departure to Orvieto. Only the Gothic Cathedral, imposing and elaborate, would be worth the visit to admire its façade but the city of Pozzo di San Patricio, offers nice corners to breathe the medieval air of the city, try the excellent wines or the renowned food. Visit and free time for lunch. In the afternoon, departure for Siena and afternoon dedicated to the visit of the city. Surrounded by the Chianti woods on one side, from the hills on the other, the city seems to extend over a low hill, in a central position with respect to the lands that have always been its domain. The famous city of Palio and contrada fascinates by the thousands of colors of its flags, its twisted streets, the perfection of its gothic monuments, the fame of its illustrious children and the taste of the products that can be tried here. Accommodation at the hotel.
