Located in the southwestern corner of the Italian region of Umbria and situated on a tufa plateau some 325m (1,066ft.) above sea level, Umbria is one of Italy’s most beautiful cities. Reached by a funicular, the historical center of the city is home to one of the world’s most striking Gothic cathedrals, as well as an imposing 13th-century city hall known as the “Palazzo del Popolo.” Orvieto also boasts a 50m (165ft.)- deep Renaissance well called the “Pozzo di San Patrizio,” and a labyrinth of narrow, charming medieval streets lined with cafes and restaurants. Buona visita!
