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.

Way off the beaten track, but find this place. It is included with the Una Carta, even though it’s privately owned and operated. The owner was there when we visited and he is very proud of his caves, and rightly so. All displays are represented in 4 languages.

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.

If you enjoy seeing archaeological remains, this is a worthwhile visit. Fascinating to see how the uses of these carved-out caverns begun by the Etruscans evolved over time. A visit can be completed in 10-30 minutes. English explanations posted throughout.

Grazie per la sua recensione. Pensiamo che, a giudicare dalla valutazione e dalla rapidità con cui ha liquidato 28 secoli di reperti archeologici, non appartenga al tipo di utenti che ha descritto all'inizio. Ci chiediamo come mai abbia deciso di far visita ad un complesso archeologico...
