Orvieto

As an urban centre, Orvieto is an ancient place, even compared to other ancient places in Italy. Its history goes back many centuries before Roman times.  Today Orvieto is a fascinating hilltop city that attracts visitors from all over the world, who come to admire one of the finest duomos (cathedrals) in Italy, a gem of Gothic architecture, as well as the underground city and St. Patrick’s well.
