URGENT HELP needed - Orvieto parking - leaving Friday !

Sorry to ask again but I didnot get any replies so here goes:

We will be stopping in Orvieto for the day, driving from Rome. We will have our luggage and need to have a place to park the car while we have lunch and tour Orvieto. I have rented a mini-van so luggage will not be completely out of sight like in a car trunk. Can anyone advise me on SAFE SECURE PARKING?

I have never had to park my car in Orvieto parking lots but I did a web search for you and came up with this excellent website:

orvietoonline.com/orvieto_raggiungere_orviet…

It even has a photo of the parking area and how to use the funicular.

Below are some excerpts taken from other travel forums/sites which may also be of help.

***

Entering the city center is rescricted. The are 2 ways for a day visit to the upper town.

1) park at the free parking of the railways station (east side of the rock) and take the "funicolare" (cableway) up to the city center. 75 people can be moved every 15 minutes.

2) go to the west side, and park at the PARCHEGGIO A PAGAMENTO "EX CAMPO DELLA FIERA". Not free, but at reasonable price, you can park your car at this new covered carpark. From there, a sistem of lifts, corridors inside a grotto, and moving stairways brings you up to the citycenter. Fun for the children, too!

Parking at Campo della Fiera is for example only 0,50 € per hour or 5 € for 24 hours! Now how good is that?
