“interesting tour”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

The tour of the caves was relatively short and the extent of coverage of the topic seemed a bit surface. The guide was nice but unable to answer some questions.

“fun and interesting archeological tour”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Etruscan mystery, long history, and a glimpse of how people used to live their lives: the cave tour was fascinating and great fun. Our tour guide was excellent: answered all the questions from adults and inquisitive kids alike, and made the spaces come alive. This was an excellent value!

“Well worth the visit.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Visiting the caves was a priority for our stop at Orvieto. The tour was very interesting and informative. We had gotten the idea that the caves had been lived in, and were a bit disappointed that they were primarily used as shops and storage, but it was still great walking through the labyrinth of caves and hearing about their history.

“excellent”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Very educational. Tickets are booked from the Tourist office. Beware it closes for a long lunch, and may be difficult to book if one is on a daytrip.

“Surprisingly cool”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We took the Underground Tour not quite knowing what to expect. It was a lot more interesting that we had thought. You can only see a small portion of the hundreds of caves under Orvieto. Many are rented by townspeople to use as wine caves.
