An interesting tour through the subterranean city- or at least two of the nine bajillion caves that lie under the city. Prior reviews worried us- my husband is 6’9” and not a thin man, and we were worried that the spaces would be too claustrophobic....More

Orvieto Underground gives you a really nice tour of some caves in the volcanic material that the town is built upon. Our guide Isabel did a good job of explaining what the Etruscans did in the caves and then explained about the relatively modern uses...More
