Orvieto in Umbria

Orvieto is one of the most beautiful cities of Umbria. On the border between Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany, allows to make a relaxing holiday but also to make excursions and trips around these three beautiful Italian regions in only one hour driving. Orvieto is situated on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tuff and it is an example of the harmonic integration between nature and human action. This splendid town is the favourite destination for those seeking a quality tourism. Orvieto offers its visitors a rich historical, artistic, gastronomic and environmental heritage. Take a walk in its historical center, made of beautiful pathways, alleys and narrow streets means taking a journey through three millennia of history. Everywhere you find traces of the ancient times. The city tour may start from the Cathedral, whose real name is the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and that is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture in central Italy. In our opinion, is one of the finest works of art that we can visit in the Italian peninsula today. A visit to Orvieto can then continue with the Rocca and the Pozzo di San Patrizio, a well built for the Popes. Walking along Corso Cavour, after a stop in one of the antique shops, you will arrive to Piazza del Popolo, where the Palazzo del Popolo and the Palazzi Papali dominate in all their splendour. Between a monument and the other, take a break in one of the characteristic restaurants to taste the typical products of this land. Do not forget that Umbria should be tasted, lived between a nice glass of red wine and Tagliatelle with truffles. Here you can still live in peace and harmony with nature. A stay in Umbria for a holiday or a business trip should be experienced in this relaxing, no stress way. Orvieto is definitely the ideal city for your holiday in Umbria.
