I'm taking you to discover the northern countryside near Rome and reach Orvieto, a three millennial crossroad city, placed between three regions: Tuscany, Latium, Umbria.

Driving along the ancient Roman Consular street named CASSIA (after the name of the Consul that built it , over 200 years bC). Passing Through many important medieval towns such as Sutri, Vetralla, Montefiascone, we leave the Cassia and head to Orvieto.

On the way, stop at a bar for a drink and to admire the stunning town of Civita di Bagnoregio ( see photo).
