  • This is a wonderful place to visit on your Italy trip.It makes for a relatively restful day in a smaller town which dates back to Etruscan times. The cathedral itself is beautiful and impressive and sets the atmosphere for the rest of this quaint Village on a Hilltop. My 26 year old son enjoyed this town more than Rome, Florence, and Venice. The train stops here on its way from Rome to Florence so it is a convenient place to stop in to relax for a day. There are a lot of handcrafted pieces for sale in cute little shops and delicious food is available. Highly recommended.!!
  • Orvieto is situated at hillside. Wonderful town with a brilliant cathedral from medieval ages. It is really colorful. It stands on a square in the heart of old town. Beautiful exterior and breathtaking interior. Don't miss its chapel with extraordinary frescoes.
