We have spoken about Orvieto in this BLOG. It is one of our most favorite hillside towns in Italy. San Gimignano being another. I reblogged this since it captures a story about entering Orvieto on the funicular and experiencing the massiveness of the Duomo.

Our next stop was Orvieto and I must admit, I was sad to leave Venice. I’ll come back one day, my love!
Orvieto in a nutshell:
The Oriveto Duomo is one the best examples of Italian Gothic architecture. During Professore Perricone’s lecture, he read an excerpt from Dante’s Inferno in Italian! It was lovely!

Strolling around and this is what we see…
I call this my Orvieto Jump! I am terribly afraid of heights so after walking down a rickety wooden ramp attached to the side of a hill, I was overjoyed that I made it alive! Woohoo!
