    h Estimate Duration

Venture off the beaten path and back in time to explore two unique villages in beautiful countryside settings. This is an opportunity to experience a more traditional side of Italy.


The first, Tuscania, has well-preserved medieval walls, and two fascinating churches. St. Mary Major, has an elaborately decorated entry carved in marble probably taken from the ancient temple upon which the church was built. The interior of St. Peter’s is lined by columns of both ancient and of newer medieval design.


Absorb the local ambiance during a stroll through narrow streets, past churches, fountains, and houses embellished with colorful pots of flowers. You’ll end up at the belvedere, for fine views of St. Peter’s Church and the city walls.


Civita di Bagnoregio perches dramatically atop a steep hill. It was once two separate towns, but the saddle of land that connected Civita to Bagnoregio eroded away, cutting off Civita and making Bagnoregio its only lifeline to the outside world. The only access is by a long footbridge, with supplies transported in by moped.


The bridge gets steeper as it rises – a challenging climb for anyone not in good shape, but well worth the effort to experience this picture perfect medieval town. Stroll the meandering lanes with your guide, then you’ll have ample time to explore and have lunch on your own.


Need to Know:

Note: Tour requires an extensive amount of walking and a steep bridge to negotiate. Comfortable walking shoes are essential. Offered on all Norwegian Spirit sailings and on Norwegian Epic round-trip Barcelona sailings only.
