Walking through the Etruscan caves was an interesting lesson in history. Learning about how they lived underground and escaped the Romans was interesting. The fact that Orvieto sits on top of thousands of these caves is fascinating and just a bit scary.

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.

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??

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.

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.
