This is a must do after a hearty lunch. The views are great. There are some hidden gems, like Etruscan burial sites and bamboo forests. plus black squirrels with little white chests. Cute-issimo!

Not for the faint hearted, the walk around the town is quite hard work and steep in places but the views over the surrounding countryside make it well worthwhile. You need suitable shoes as the track is good but not a perfect walking surface. The view up to the town and of the openings into the Etruscan caves are the... More

A good way to enjoy the view and at the same time grasp the magnitude of the ancient city of Orvieto. The walk takes about two hours and is easy. Bringing a schematic map would help when the notation is not so clear

Fantastic views from an easy to moderately difficult trail around the cliffs of Orvieto. Not much shade so it gets hot at midday. Several entrances / exits around the edge of the city. Look for large maps, especially one in Piazza del Duomo. Take your camera!

Very roughly, the Anello rings the town outside the walls and about 50-80 ft. below the main level. There are 5 ways down to it. We ran it, once or twice a day for five weeks. A circuit for us takes just over 40 minutes which would put the distance at about 3 1/2 to 4 miles. [It is hard... More

We hiked about two-thirds of the way around the walk and thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. By coincidence the only other walkers we met were English - 'mad dogs and Englishmen out in the midday sun'? Part of the route was reasonably steep, so it probably isn't suitable for those with physical limitations, but it does offer some beautiful views and... More

This walk is great for the views as well as walking from one side of town to the other without having to go through the center. It's also a quick way to the Funicolare, depending on where you are. The views are beautiful, especially around sunset.

Our whole family enjoyed this walk around Orvieto. If you have kids who would like to get by some rocks to climb or some grass to play in, then this is a good choice. There are 5 access points around the city (find them on map from information office across from the Duomo). We only did about 1/4 of the... More

The Anello della Rupe or Ring around the Rock can be an adventure or a strenous walk. It can be accessed from several points, the easiest being the entrance from Piazza Marconi and Palazzo Crispo Marsciano. You will note a large map of Orvieto on a board with the letters PAAO (Parco Archeologico Ambientale dell'Orvietano). The paved area leads between... More
