This visit takes about an hour. It's a guided tour and the young lady who was our guide made it very interesting and enjoyable . It's a fascinating place to see and understand . It's also a welcome relief from the heat of the sun....More

Visiting the small portion of the caves open to the public (tour only) is interesting as the haves are under the whole city and most are connected to private homes.

We enjoyed the 45 minute tour of the underground caves in Orvieto. The guide was interesting and informative.

Be prepared to do some hiking. But definitely worth it. The caves are under the entire city. They were built for protection. Now mostly for storage.

While staying in Orvieto we toured the underground excavations that were under most of the homes. Used for business, manufacturing, bird raising and storage, the caverns were remarkable. The area under the homes was apparently very soft volcanic and easy to create areas under the...More

If you're wishing to do an English speaking tour make sure you check first at the office for available times, because those are only available several times through out the day (at least when we were there). We loved this tour! It was informative and...More

My husband and I were amazed by the underground areas in Orvieto. The hour long tour took us to two caves and was led by a very informative guide. If you are going to visit this area, I would definitely recommend the Underground caves tour.

Many steep steps, but worth every one. Great tour with an appropriate mix of history, geography and geology that puts one in the Etruscan and Middle Ages. Our guide was excellent and although doing six tours a day, kept an enthusiasm level that made our...More
