The first stop on our Cruise to Dubai was Civitavecchia (the Rome port city). Since all of us had been to Rome before, we decided to book a private tour and explore Orvieto and Bagnoregio.
Cita di Bagnoregio is a small town near Rome that sits on a hill, like a lot of cities in the region. It was abandoned for a long time, but now has about 15 inhabitants that most likely are there to caters to tourists. The base of this city is eroding slowly, so eventually, it will slowly be abandoned again.
From here we set out to Orvieto to see their famous cathedral and the other sites in the city
We also had enough time to take a tour of some of the tunnels below the city that were dug through the years. They were used for different things: such as cellars, water storage, and even as a coup for pigeons.
Lastly, on our way back to our ship, we stopped on top of a hill to admire the view of a big lake in the region.
