Unique among all the sites we visited in Italy. A fascinating hour spent exploring the medieval underground city.

Fascinating

This was really interesting - fascinating to think of the Etruscans creating these wells and storage spaces. Especially the dovecotes were fascinating. Our guide was enthusiastic and well informed.

Unusual but very interesting

I visited Orvieto mainly to see the Duomo but looking for additional interesting things to do, Orvieto Underground caught my eye too. Tickets can be purchased in a shop just opposite of the cathedral, tours run both in Italian and English. The underground areas were pretty interesting, similarly the stories regarding the man made caves (some were used to house pigeons as "easy to grow" source of food in case of sieges. The tour lasts about 1 hour.

A journey in time and history. The undergrounds are a little bit exaggerated regarding their importance, but they are very nice to interact with. We had a wonderful visit with a very good guide. I strongly recommend.

AMAZING

Having taken the tour previously we were no less impressed. It is truly amazing! The underground caverns are spacious, however, the stairways from level to level are a bit tight. Railings are provided on all stairs. The area is very well lighted.

We stopped in Orvieto on a whim, mostly for the chance to ride a funicular. This tour was riveting from beginning to end. Every part of the tour, from the history to the geology to the drama, was delivered extremely well by our English-speaking guide. I've never had another experience like it.

A very pleasant surprise
Jan 2020
Our one hour tour was very informative. Well worth the visit. Our time in Orvieto was well worth the effort of getting there.The funicular railway access to the medieval town was a delight. Psst, try the coffee at the railway cafe, sensational. It was the best of any we had while in Italy for 21 days. You will need at least 3-4 hours to absorb the town, its ambience and attractions.

Really enjoyed this, pleasant, informative guide and an interesting experience. Takes around an hour, we needlessly rushed to make a particular tour only to find that one wasn't in English, may help some people to check in advance
