The highlight of our trip. Truly some of the best food we had, even when compared against much larger cities like Florence. Everyone we met was welcoming and interested in talking to us. There wasn't that feeling of massive tourist overload you find in other places. And how can you go wrong with a medieval walled city on a cliff?

We enjoyed our one-day side trip to Orvieto from Rome. While we did not enjoy the Italian train service workers, the town itself is quaint, walkable, interesting and refreshingly peaceful after being in the urban grander of Rome.

A very interesting village to visit- you can't miss the Duomo! Such beauty. Take the elevator up to the town level- the escalators don't always work. Some really neat shops and great restaurants. Check tripadvisor for recommended restaurants.

This must be the most perfect natural fortress ever. Approaching by road, its commanding rock walls soar above, topped by walls and fortifications. From the road into the city, there are expansive views over the surrounding countryside. Passing into the gates of the city, the approach is typically Italian, narrow streets with sharp corners until the Piazza appears and the... More

One of our stops with Globus tours. Walked in a cathedral that is still standing since the 1200's. The streets are filled with small shops for the tourist to browse into. Orvieto is a town you must see while in Italy.

After visiting Venice and Florence and on our way to Rome we spent half a day in this very beautiful and peaceful hill town in the Tuscany/Umbria area which was is an ancient Etruscan stronghold sitting on a volcanic rock. It was so peaceful, crowd free, and charming to say the least. It is us a very steep hill, bus... More

great medieval town worth a day trip at least. The streets that lead up to the main piazza are intriguing filled with artists and designers and specialist shops.

Lots to see, lots of small shops, especially near the cathedral up a little lane you find a leather bag shop, excellent, quality and price, a bit further you find a man carving things from olive trees, also good. Orvieto is not to be missed. Visit the underground caves is a must. Gilleken belgium

Walk. Eat. See amazing things. Repeat. Take the funicular up the hill, explore the original walls, go into the caves below, drink locally grown wine, stare at the overwhelming facade of the duomo. A day trip to a few, highly recommend a visit.
