UNSPOILT UMBRIA & The Villa The Tree of Life offers :

Tailor-made tours & excursions in and around Orvieto
Half day tour - medieval Bolsena walk with wine tasting
You will be picked up from Orvieto and driven through lovely scenery to the little town of Bolsena by its large volcanic lake (30 minutes drive). Here we will walk through the pretty, medieval quarter of Bolsena with its cobbled streets, castle, picturesque little squares then visit the church of Santa Cristina, famous for its miracle which is the basis for the festival of Corpus Domini. We finish our walk down by the lake where you can buy a
beer/delicious artisan Gelato. Then we drive back towards Orvieto to a family run vineyard that has wonderful views back to the city.
Here we will have a short tour including seeing where the wine barrels are kept in an Etruscan cave and taste 4 to 5 of their delicious wines, usually accompanied by ‘nibbles’ of mature pecorino cheese and bread to be dipped in their own extra virgin olive oil. Return to Orvieto (10 minutes).
