Passeggiata serale sulle antiche strade acciottolate di Orvieto
"Evening walk on the ancient cobbled streets of Orvieto"...
Orvieto is one of the most striking, memorable, and enjoyable hill towns in central Italy. Less than 90 minutes from Rome, Orvieto sits majestically high above the valley floor atop a big chunk of volcanic stone called tufa, and overlooking cypress-dotted Umbrian plains and vineyards. The ancient city rewards one with a peaceful and historical stroll back in time to the days of the Etruscans, who built this cliff top village over 2000 years ago for protection from their enemies. The ancient Etruscan wall still stands today presenting colorful cliffside views, and protecting the famous Duomo di Orvieto, the Palazzo del Popolo, and other antique treasures. The blue evening skies reflect on the shiny-worn cobblestone strada below as the last bit of sun illuminates the way for a delightful promenade.
