Overall Guide : Orvieto is a charming, spiritual, it has everything for everyone culture of Italy. You must like to walk and be friendly and love to shop, eat and see the real new and old italy their are museums, art frescas, hideaway... more eateries tipico, shoes,clothes, and just sitting and watching the people. The gelato is terrific and the scenery from all the hilltop areas cannot be beat. You are a car or trainride away from Rome, Florence and all the small quaint festivals and towns.
Not to be missed Cathedral
