Orvieto and the cliff: they have always been one and the same. Needing no defensive walls, the city developed freely within. But the restrictions imposed by the very nature of the cliff meant that as time passed the city also grew upon itself, one phase on top of the other. So as you wander through the streets of Orvieto, you never lose touch with its history.
Signs and clues are everywhere, piled on top of each other, and one step after the other, the succession of centuries and generatone unfolds before you. The walk you are taking is through three thousand years of history. Let the city tell its story.
