Orvieto Caves, Orvieto
Categories: Caves, Nature & Parks
More than a geological attraction, Orvieto Caves offers tours of an underground city. Inhabitants spent 2,500 years digging cavities into the earth, which overlap and intersect beneath the modern structure of the city. This location connects us to an ancient and mysterious pre-Roman people: the Etruscans. The caverns have served as galleries, cellars, cisterns, and more. Medieval families of nobility had access to these caves via secret escape tunnels. Wear shoes for walking up and down many steps. Tour guides speak fluent English.
