Your licensed tour guide in Umbria takes you on a private tour of Torgiano, a hilltown overlooking lush green vineyards at the confluence of the Tiber and Chiàscio rivers. Torgiano was originally an Etruscan enclave and later a Roman fort. You will tour Torgiano’s Museum of Wine, which takes you through the history of winemaking through artifacts ranging from wine presses to paintings. The museum, as well as a nearby hotel, restaurant, and winery, are owned by world-renown wine producer Giorgio Lungarotti.
Next you will have a guided tour of Deruta, a hill town and medieval commune known for its brightly-colored ceramic tableware, which are exported worldwide.
Your guided tour will conclude with a trip to Montecastello di Vibio, a pre-Roman settlement. Today, you can still view the imposing medieval castle, towering about the Tevere River. The town claims an unusual record: the smallest classical-style theater in the world. The 99-seat Teatro della Concordia, built in 1808, offers free afternoon tours and periodic performances.
