Note that this is a full day trip. Keep in mind that if you’re flying back home from Rome, this could be your final special treat on your way to the airport!
Orvieto is a lovely city in southwestern Umbria, 90 minutes from Rome. It lays on the top of a large volcanic tufa hill and you’ll get mesmerized as much by the views and glimpses of the old town as by the labyrinth of tunnels, stairs and hidden passageways dug into the tuff. Towering above it all is the magnificent and gleaming façade of the cathedral: built between the end of the XIII and XIV centuries, it is home of some real treasures: Fra Angelico’s frescoes and Luca Signorelli’s Last Judgement above all… The most striking surprise you’ll enjoy in the undergrounds, is the “Well of Saint Patrick” that still stuns contemporary engineers with its scale: it is 175 feet deep, 45 feet wide, and it counts 496 steps down. Built in the XVI century, its double helix ramp once lightened and eased the arduous task of moving water up 62 meters.
In the afternoon we will visit the Etruscan town of Civita di Bagnoregio. The village sits on top of a hill made up of a layer of tufa and it is also known as ‘the town that is dying’ because of the continuous erosion which over the years has reduced the town centre in size and its population in number. The only way to get it is to walk along the an impressive long walkway suspended in the air.
