The tour through the caves was clearly a highlight of our visit. The tour is offered in several languages and takes about 50 minutes, the tickets cost 6€ per person.

We visited Orvieto which is a larger town in central Italy. Built on cliff with many km of underground tunnels. Interesting view of life over thousands of years in this region.

A fabulous place to escape the heat of high summer! A very interesting hour spent exploring two of the multitude of caves under this beautiful city. Highly recommended.

You should be physically able to visit. Steps and uneven floors. There is a small fee. Buy your tickets in the Duomo Square.

Brilliant,great guide, and indicates how the people of Orvieto 2-3000 years ago managed to survive.This is a cave open to the public but Orvieto is riddled with caves.

Terrific and inexpensive one-hour tour of a few of Orvietto's 1200 underground caves, originally built by the Etruscans who settled the area before the Romans! Knowledgeable tour guide. This is not a tour for people with strollers or mobility issues.
