This is one of the most popular tours in Orvieto, find out why for yourself
Situated on a high cliff, and surrounded by defensive walls, Orvieto dates back to the time of the Etruscans. However, the city was probably more significant following the collapse of the Roman Empire. Take time to explore the magnificent Duomo with its striped black and white façade. One area of the city which goes unnoticed by many visitors is the city which lies under their feet. Underground Orvieto is a labyrinth of caves, rooms, and tunnels carved into the rock.
To complete your experience of Orvieto we move on to the countryside, just outside the center, for a 'taste' of something very special from one of the most renowned wine producers in Umbria.
Visit the winery, the vineyard and the cantinas where the grapes are turned into some of the finest wines in the region. The tour continues inside the open vaulted rooms of the winery, where you end your day sampling some of the outstanding vintages produced on the estate, accompanied by some tempting appetizers.
If you have a little more time, how about adding a cookery lesson to your tour? Here you will have the whole cellar experience along with a cookery lesson of four dishes, which of course, will be accompanied by the very best wines.
My tour outlines are ideas of what you can see and experience, but you're individual, and so tours can be tailored to include all, or selected places of interest, please, just ask.
