Orvieto is an old town located on a tufa outcrop 300 feet above the gorgeous Paglia valley below. The city is mostly known for its Duomo (Orvieto Catherdral) and is considered one of the most architecturally important in Europe, for its Etruscan roots, and for the museums where one finds collections and displays that range over 2,500 years of history. During this tour you will walk through Orvieto’s charming, narrow alleys, and small squares. Your tour will be a very memorable experience, perfect for reflecting over while you enjoy an Umbrian meal and a glass (or two) of Orvieto Classico wine (not included).

Our guide was great. Very knowledgeable , friendly and did a great job explaining Orvieto to us, including our twin 13 year old grandsons.
Very nice, friendly guide with very good English. Arrived promptly at meeting point. Tour began well. Much information about the St. Patrick's well and all that area. Then we walked up the street towards the Cathedra, and some shops and architectural points of interest were pointed out along the way. At the cathedral the guide book was produced. I could have bought my own. After walking around inside, the tour was over. It was less than 2 hours. Very bad value for money and did not do justice to the beautiful city. Buy the guide book and do it yourself!
We loved our guide who gave us an informative tour and was also able to direct us to a great restaurant in this town. Our group turned out to be small so we really were able to ask questions and get special attention.
Very professional and thorough tour. Would highly recommend it. Also greatly appreciated Michele taking time to help me buy a ticket for an afternoon tour of the underground which he suggested I should do and his great ristorante recommendation, which was perfect!
