"Wine, Etruscans and a magnificent duomo" Top 5 Page for this destination Orvieto by Trekki
Orvieto Travel Guide: 217 reviews and 756 photos
Orvieto was the last stop during my three weeks touring through Umbria. After a lot of rainy but pleasant days the city and region surprised me with very sunny weather. Orvieto is famous for its wine of course, but it was also a very old settlement, the major one during Etruscan times. Necropoli Cocifisso di Tufo at the slopes of Orvieto can be visited, it is well worth it. And then of course the most magnificent duomo with its beatiful façade!
I hope you enjoy walking with me through this splendid town.
