Orvieto lies between Rome and Florence, a magical city in Umbria whose origins date back to the Etruscan civilization, over 2,000 years ago, before the Romans. The historical center sits on top of a hill surrounded by a wall still standing, and the view of the Umbrian Hills is breathtaking. There are tunnels and caves you can explore, the world famous Orvieto Classico white wine you can drink, and of course the churches you will marvel at, some dating back to the BC era. The most spectacular of these is the magnificent Cathedral Duomo, a Gothic masterpiece that takes your breath away for it's magnificent architecture and massive size. Walk everywhere on medieval cobblestone streets, eat fabulous food on every corner, shop at beautiful stores, and wonder at how easily the modern world meets the archaic. It's worth every moment spent here. enjoy!
