First of all I would say that I'm glad we did the walk. After 2 1/2 days in Orvieto, we pretty much walked the whole town twice at least and seen the sites that we wanted to see. We decided to walk the entire Anello o after breakfast. By then it was already probably about 90°. We descended the stairs... More

Indeed, there is a walking path completely surrounding the base of Orvieto. Much of it is paved. But others have characterized the path as "mostly level." It is not. There are plenty of ups and downs, and on a warm day a little panting is assured. There is a point where a series of escalators return the hiker to the... More

We did this early in the morning right after sunrise- it was a great walk and I would definitely recommend if you have time. Be prepared though- it is very hilly and is tiring. Also, it's very easy to get lost since there are a lot of splits in the trail.

We were back again this summer for another 30-40 runs—heaven smiles on us— and we realized that there were a few things that we omitted to say last year (or got slightly wrong). It is indeed the same wonderful resource it ever was. Please note there is a water tap on South segment of the Anello itself, about midway in... More

We enjoyed this walk around Orvieto with a side trip to the Eutruscan burial site. Great views, shady in parts, so cool to see the rock cliffs close up. The ruins we took a detour to were very peaceful and had a good vibe, worth the 3 euros to get in. Go early so you can be the only ones... More

The Anello della Rupe is a trail that goes along the base of the walls of the town of Orvietio. It provides a nice break from the town and a good opportunity to walk among rocks, trees, and flowers. There are 5 access points from the top of the city. A map is available from the Tourist Information office across... More

Good for working off jet lag. Not that many great views. We didn't have a map and it would have been helpful. There are places where other trails veer off and there are no signs. If your time is limited, definitely skip it. Can be done in an hour of fairly brisk walking.

This is a lovely and varied walk below the walls of the town. It's accessible from five points and so you can choose the length of your walk, even taking the escalator back up from Foro Bario if you wish. The tourist office by the Duomo has a useful map, though you won't get lost without one. You could start... More

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
