The village is charming and picturesque with great food, cheap and many beautiful handcrafted items. Eating ranges from €7 for a huge and... More

This is a lovely 12th century town that lies high upon a hill. Walking the narrow streets takes one back in time. The town has many shops and restaurants and is home to a gorgeous Duomo!

Orvieto is perfect for a day or more time.The Duomo! the best gelateria in the region (next to the Duomo), excellent restaurants of all prices and atmosphere, lovely to walk around. Easy to see why it is a popular destination for Romans on a day trip for lunch!

A great stop over driving north from Rome to Tuscany. Ovvieto is full of great shopping, including ceramics that are shipped all over the world because of their colour and quality. This town has a great buzz about it, the food is brilliant and the shopping is excellent.

We found our way to the main street, Corso Cavour lined with shops and then turned up Via del Duomo to get tickets... More
