This was a good tour, but I wasn't impressed much. There are far better places to see in Rome.
The town of Assisi and Orvieto is magnificent and it is totally worth visiting at least once.
Chapel of Porziuncola, Church of St. Claire and Duomo di Orvieto is just some of the places that the tour includes. Plus, the countryside is magnificent. I loved the tour!!
