“Nice tour fantastic guide”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We took the tour and it was nice. Since we visited a few other similar sites it was only nice", if you didn't visit such man made caves before it will be a great experience.

The guide (Can't remember her name) was very knowledgeable and gladly answered any question we had.

“Very Interesting Tour”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

A very interesting guided tour, costing less than 10e p/p. There is some climbing, stairs, and if you're claustrophobic, you may not be able to complete this tour. Otherwise, it's pretty amazing to see the caves and even one that was used as a bomb shelter during the war, which was attached to the hospital. Tour lasts about an hour and a half??

“Very Interesting”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

The caves (which actually exist under nearly every Orvieto dwelling) were very interesting and a welcome change-up from some of the more staid museum tours that can be a bit overwhelming. It was a very good value and gave a great flavor to the history of the city.

“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!
