Orvieto sits dramatically on a vulcanic plateau, high above the Umbrian countryside which surrounds the whole town. Its rich history began with the Etruscans and includes periods of Roman rule, barbarian invaders, medieval battles with the papacy for its independence and it has also been used as a papal refuge during the famous sack of Rome! In addition to being known for its high quality truffles, the town boasts an incredible Gothic cathedral with a frescoed “Last Judgement” to rival Michelangelo’s in the Sistine Chapel, a labyrinth of ancient underground tunnels and a fine art gallery.
