Piazza Duomo 24 - 05018 Orvieto
Forello gorge is located between Todi and Orvieto and formed by the Tiber river that crosses the ridge Peglia - Monti Amerini. This very steep and scarcely populated place forms the heart of the Tiber River Park.

There are major complex of caves carved by water in the limestone rocks of the walls, including the Cave of the Plain which extends for 2500 m in a travertine bench and where artifacts dating from the Neolithic and the Bronze Ages have been found, and the cave of Vorgozzino, in the formation of red stone, which reaches a depth of 123 m.
