Itinerary

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Orvieto Underground, Piazza del Duomo 23, 05018, Orvieto Italy

The peculiar geological nature of massive stone, which has allowed its inhabitants to excavate, has allowed its inhabitants to excavate, in course of 2500 years, an incredible number of grottoes, extending, overlapping and intersecting each other under the modern urban structure . Today, these are a precious source of historical and archaeological data. The visit goes one of the most interesting and structured underground complexes of the town. You guide will let you discover the traces left by the ancient inhabitants of Orvieto, in a pathway that is easy and enjoyable. Here is the effect of daylight and shadow cutting through the millennial obscurity of the subsoil unveils deep and narrow wells, along with the Etruscan underground waterfalls in search of water, majestic stone mills and long series of tunnels.

Situated in less than two hours drive, Orvieto was an important Etruscan City-State. Orvieto has a unique history that dates back to over several million years ago. The origin of the Orvieto rock is most likely two to an ancient volcanic eruption. It is believed that today´s rock, where the city of Orvieto stands today, is one of these great masses of tufa rock flung from the large crater that is now the Bolsena Lake. The Etruscans inhabited Orvieto until the III Century BC, and consequently the Romans invaded it. It took the Romans two years to conquer Orvieto, which is a natural fortress, surrounded by cliffs. The Etruscans had an intricate web of caves and numerous wells, in order to defend Orvieto for a long time.
