In this privately owned museum the visitor can not only learn about the ceramics that were produced there and the technology how they were made, but also experience how people lived in the old times in their homes carved into the tufa rockbed. There is also a cistern housing a wine cellar and several super deep former wells that supplied water for centuries. And the museum’s cafe offers great cappuccino with fantastic homemade wine biscuits, definitely worth sticking around a bit longer for.

The caves tour was a very enlightening look at the way the people of Orvieto once lived. I was not that keen about going but on a rainy afternoon had nothing better to do. It was only a short tour (about one hour) but very interesting. The people lived in the cave system for over 1000 years and their survival instincts were marvelous.
I would recommend this tour.

Oooof! The line was so long to get tickets to the Orvieto Underground and to secure a place in the obligatory tour. But after doing both of these sites, I would definitely opt for the Pozzo della Cava instead. Yes, we learned different things in the underground tour and it was good, but I didn't love clamoring for a place in the tour...and it was only April (not summer).

I will say that if you are staying two days in Orvieto, the Carta Unica is worth it. Buy it at the train station and it will pay for the funicular ride, bus rides and all sites worth seeing. And, no need to stand in line (except at the Pozzo di San Patrizio, where you have to show your CU to get the ticket that allows you in the PdSP).

Grazie per la sua recensione e per la valutazione. Siamo felici che abbia trovato molto positiva l'esperienza da noi, ma ricordiamo a chi ci legge che tutta Orvieto va visitata, sia i monumenti più famosi e affollati, sia quelli più decentrati che sanno far entrare con garbo nel vissuto della città e del territorio.

We had very little time to view the underground and this tour was perfect! We went at our own pace and learned a lot about the Etruscans but the neatest part was the little old couple that runs the place! He is just adorable and will bring you to flooring that has plexiglass where you can jump on it but also view the cave from his little restaurant/gift shop. We had a blast I would recommend this to our friends.

We actually took the underground cave experience that you purchase near the Duomo first and then had time for this one. Wow! We found it so interesting that there are so many caves in Orvieto and that they belong to the buildings owner that is above them. The first tour gives you more history on the caves overall, whereas this one only presents it’s history. They provide such detailed information and many artifacts to view. This one far exceeded the first cave tour. It was much more extensive with good lighting and excellent explanations in (I believe) four languages.
Entry was 4 Euros and you tour at your leisure.

They provide nice bathrooms and have a restaurant above, but we had already eaten. Be sure to go in the restaurant and look through the viewing window in the floor to the cave below.

We would highly recommend this tour even if your just on a day trip to Orvieto as we were. You won’t be disappointed.

This was 1 minute walking from our AirBnB and so became the first stop in Orvieto. It's a short but interesting introduction to the city—when we visited we were the only visitors. The highlight for us was the gift shop, which has very cool local pottery painted to model medieval designs and a lovely, elderly attendant who transcended our language barrier with some endearing humor.

Mille grazie per la sua recensione. Se c'era poca gente e un solo addetto ai servizi, probabilmente ha approfittato di una apertura straordinaria estiva del lunedì.

This was an easy 20 minute walk from the Duomo. The walk itself was also lovely as I saw a part of Orvieto I hadn't seen before. It was very charming.
The Pozzo della Cava is privately owned and the owners have provided an amazing place to visit. It is well lit, well laid out and plenty of useful information , (also in English).
It is also cool which was a welcome respite from the heat of the day.
The Pozzo is breath taking to look down. It's quite a an amazing feat.
On display there are various examples of pottery that were created in the time that parts of basement were used as a kiln.
At the end of the tour there's a lovely outside space where you can sit. There's also a bar where you can get refreshments and also is a small shop
I would really recommend visting here.

Go the the information center in front of the cathedral. The tour is offered in several languages, including English. It is offered by the city and the price is right at 5 euros per person. Worth the price for a guided tour!
