A gripping journey through history, art and faith, that will lead you to discover timeless monuments, like one of the most beautiful cathedrals of Central Italy, the Orvieto Cathedral. This impressive cathedral, which stands majestically in the famous Orvieto square, still is considered as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the late Italian Middle Ages. Lunch in an Umbrian traditional restaurant, to taste the flavours of the finest regional cuisine and the CDO (Controlled Denomination of Origin) wine Orvieto Classico, famous for its ancient production of Etruscan origin.

It’s not just an underground excursion, but also a real itinerary that will lead you to discover the historical phases of Orvieto, starting from the Etruscan “Velzana” until the Medieval and Renaissance epochs.
