Impressively situated above a volcanic plug, which is a volcanic landform created when magma hardens within a vent on an active volcano, Orvieto appears to be rising right out of the rock formation upon which it was built.
One of the most important sites to see and visit is the 14th century Cathedral of Orvieto built by Pope Urban IV to provide a beautiful holy place for the Corporal of Bolsena.
The cathedral’s construction was begun in 1290 and lasted for almost 300 years evolving from Romanesque to Gothic as can be seen in the intricate facade that contains many elements of design.
Largely pedestrian friendly and ideal for a stroll, Orvieto has excellent shopping opportunities at many ceramic shops that sell locally handcrafted ceramics with designs unique to Orvieto.
Wine lovers will be delighted at the excellent Orvieto wines are mainly white wines made from a blend of mostly Grechetto and Trebbiano. The region has been producing wine since the Middle Ages, and today’s white Orvieto is dry, but a semi-sweet style, known as Orvieto Abboccato, and dolce (sweet), are also produced in small quantities. Visitors may sample wines at various local wine shops in town.
At the completion of your visit in Orvieto, you will meet your driver at the appointed Meeting Time and Place, and continue on your leisurely journey to your final destination.
