Orvieto is an ancient city with Etruscan origins that dominates the valley of the river Paglia from the top of the tuff cliff on which it stands. A beautiful place to visit with a unique history dating back to million years ago. In the morning, we will take a stroll around Orvieto old town, and we will visit the majestic Cattedrale of Santa Maria Assunta, best known as the “Duomo”, a magnificent masterpiece of Gothic and Romanesque architecture, one of the most important in Europe. Another symbol of the city itself, steps from a breathtaking belvedere, is St. Patrick’s Well, a spectacular engineering work of the 16th century which you can even climb! At the end, delicious typical Umbrian lunch at local restaurant.

After lunch, we will have the guided visit to Orvieto Underground and we will discover the city under a city. The guided tour of Underground Orvieto represents the most appropriate tool to get in touch with this very particular cultural aspect of a city very rich in history and artistic jewels. Step by step, mysterious and fascinating echoes speak of the Etruscan Velzna, while ghosts of the medieval and Renaissance city transpire from the humid shadow. Where the tortuous underground path runs parallel to the cliff, from panoramic openings the day contends in the dark with a succession of tunnels, stairs, unexpected passages and overlapping rooms. 

Return to the hotel, dinner and overnight stay.
