Description

ORVIETO & Civita di Bagnoregio

ORVIETO

The ancient city, urbs vetus in Latin, hence Orvieto, has been populated since Etruscan times. Orvieto was certainly a major center of Etruscan civilization; the Archaeological Museum houses some of the Etruscan artifacts that have been recovered from neighboring areas. The exceptional views commanded by the city, as well as the beautiful skyline of Orvieto itself, can be fully appreciated by looking out from the top of the 13th century Torre del Moro, the highest vantage point in town.

Cathedral of Orvieto

The heart of Orvieto is undoubtedly Piazza del Duomo, onto which you look at the town’s most important public buildings and the façade of the Duomo, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with its polychrome marble inlays and dazzling mosaics. The interior of the cathedral contains, among other important works of art, Luca Signorelli’s fresco cycles depicting the Antichrist, Armageddon, the Resurrection of the Flesh, the Chosen and the Reprobates, along with a spectacular Last Judgment in the San Brizio Chapel. Another great artist, Beato Angelico, completed the angels in the vaults of the ceiling. Started in 1290, the Duomo took several centuries before completion. At the corner of Via del Duomo there still survives the mechanical clock tower that chimed the moments of work and rest for the workmen in the building site over the centuries.

Orvieto Underground

A number of Etruscan remains testify to the importance of the city even before Roman rule. They are the Necropoli del Crocifisso del Tufo, the burial ground at the base of the plateau on which the city stands and the underground passages beneath the city. Over the past 3,000 years those who have lived on top of this high plateau dug an unbelievable number of cavities into the soft volcanic rock on which their city stood. Now the caves and cavities that overlap and intersect beneath the streets and buildings of the modern town have been brought to “light”. Today these underground passages form almost another city beneath Orvieto. If interested a guided tour of the amazing “Orvieto Underground” can be organized in advance.
