Orvieto The Essential
Recommended
Once an important Etruscan centre, Orvieto later became a papal stronghold. This attractive city with a wealth of historic buildings enjoys a stunning location perched on top of a platform of volcanic rock. The upper town, crossed by Corso Cavour, is a particularly pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by, maybe with a glass of the local Orvieto wine, renowned for its dry, fragrant aroma.
