Traveling to Rome: Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto and Rome
It’s possible to reach Rome by train at Rapolano Terme Train Station (28 km, 29 minutes from Bucine) or at Chiusi Train Station (79 km, 61 minutes from Bucine). But if there is the possibility of using a car, it’s suggested a fascinating journey through the center of Italy to discover little gems of the nation in just a two-hour trip.
On the highway junction take the direction to Perugia located at 106 km, 1 hour and 30 minutes from Bucine. Etruscan city that still retains a charm intact. There are several things to visit, such as: "Fontana Maggiore" (1278), " Palazzo dei Priori", (Gothic 1293) " Cattedrale di San Lorenzo" (1490), " Sala dei Notari " (XV century) and a number of museums such as: " Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria", " Museo Archeologico Nazionale" and " Museo Storico Perugina". In October it hosts the Chocolate Festival "Eurochocolate".
Left Perugia continue to the junction E45 towards Cesena and follow the signs to Assisi. A wonderful city that was the birthplace of San Francesco. It’s a village that gives the impression of being completely out of time. Each corner has an anecdote and a small piece of history to tell. And beautiful is the "Basilica di San Francesco d’Assisi" (1253) with inside frescoes of Giotto.
Taking the highway, before reaching Rome it’s recommend going to visit Orvieto. A pretty jewel in the heart of Umbria with the "Duomo" (1591) whose facade is considered the most beautiful of all across the world's religious monuments! Very beautiful is also “Il Pozzo di San Patrizio”.
