The beauty of Orvieto: between earth and sky

Because of its long and varied history, Orvieto has always been called “the ancient city” (urbs vetus in Latin, whence Orvieto) and is considered as one of the oldest Italian towns. Populated since Etruscan times, the city was subsequently occupied by the Romans and later annexed to the Pontifical States, during the 15th century. Spurs of this varied history can still be felt in the appearance of its buildings and in the unparalleled atmosphere, you will enjoy here.
