Is there a place to leave luggage while we walk around Orvieto?

by DMelanogaster

We are thinking of spending a day in Orvieto, coming from Venice and continuing on that evening to Rome (all by train). Would there be a place to leave our suitcases while we walk around, eat, tour the caves, etc.?

for example, in the train station??

Thank you

The Trenitalia website does not show a Left Luggage service at Orvieto's station. There apparently used to be such service, but it closed some time ago.

I have also perused the tourism website for Orvieto and found no hits (I was hoping that they arranged for it).

On other websites, people say that they ask the stationmaster to keep it in his office if there is room, or they tip the bartender to keep it. Others say that they have taken the stuff up the funicular and paid someone a few euro to keep the bags at a hotel.

You might send an email to the tourism office -
- and see what they have to would think that they have had this question before...

Travel Tips for Orvieto

The opera house, sorry, theatre

by iandsmith

In addition to theatre, one if its main functions is weddings and special occasions.
The entrance of the Theatre Mancinelli is composed by an elegant portico with seven openings and a wonderful hall which is completely adorned with paintings of the XIX century.
This is the fascinating setting that welcomes the spouses and guests at the moment of their arrival.
Increasingly sought by theatre companies because its functional features, the Mancinelli was reopened to the public in December 1993 after a careful restoration that respected its original beauty.
Since then the theatre hosts high level performances planned and managed successfully by the Associazione Te.Ma., in cooperation with the municipality of the city.
From year to year the programming proposals have been supported by a large and diverse audience not only from Orvieto but also from different cities of Umbria and central Italy.
The activity concerns the organization of the theatre season, the realization of theatre productions, the promotion of a “School of theatre Crafts”, the promotion of a tourist project labelled "visit to the theatre". We were simply walking past, saw a picture of the insides and thought, "How wonderful it would be to see a show here". As my brother was wont to say, "It all sounds good in theory".
Alas, there was no show to be seen while we were there but the oh-so-obliging lady who was there kindly let us in, turned the lights on and showed us around.
Of course, being from Australia, this was a treat. We simply don't have opera houses of this ilk and simply being inside was a bit special.
We admired the paintings, mostly of females, and the one of the four seasons (pic 4) caught our eye.
There are, apparently, guided tours as well but we had to be satisfied with our small viewing and it will remain a fond memory for us always.

If you're used to wash cloths, bring them

by Bunsch

Our hotel in Orvieto included bath towels and hand towels, but not what we Americans call "wash cloths" (a small towel used to wash one's face). Luckily, my friend had brought a supply which could be left behind in each city, and I brought Olay's excellent cleansing tissues because that's what I use back in Rhode Island. But if you're younger than we are and dislike using a corner of your bath towel to wash your face, you might think about packing something you wouldn't mind discarding after your visit.

S. Patrick's well (Pozzo di S.Patrizio)

by janchan

Here is the Pozzo di San Patrizio (S.Patrick's well) built between 1527 and 1537 for the water supply of the city.
It's 62 mt. deep and it has 248 steps to reach the bottom but a popular legend says that it is bottomless. :O

The ticket price is 3.10 euro.

Percorso Rupe (cont)

by iandsmith

Gliding along in the brisk air, the tufa towers above you and the Umbrian landscape rolling out beside is a nice thing to do.
Then we reached the Porta Rocca just as a runner swept past with all the trappings of modernity attached in the form of special running shoes, gym equipment, dietary drink and that thing I despise when walking, the ipod. Personally I want to hear the sounds of nature and people, it's the music of the streets as Neil Diamond was wont to point out.
Perhaps I've turned into a grumpy old man.
Off to the side the Trenitalia expresses raced by frequently as we crossed the funicular route and then moved down with the track past a copse of trees, slowly turning with the season.
We pushed on to where the path splits in two and you can ascend (via the Palazzo Crispo Marsciano entrance) or continue. We moved on, on to the viewpoint over the Etruscan necropolis (8th to 3rd century B.C.,open to tourists) where, for a fee, you can move among the ancient grave sites, laid out like a small town in ordered rows (pic 3).
Equally fascinating immediately behind us was a small chapel carved into the rock. Legend has it that a soldier (with the 6th century Goths under Totilla) was unjustly accused of theft and murder by his comrades and threw himself off the cliff, on the way down invoking the crucifix attached around his neck. Miraculously, so the story goes, he landed uninjured and then carved the chapel out with his bare hands.
Reality dictates that it dates to around the 16th century and there are little inscriptions carved here and there (one probably in gratitude for the defeat of Napoleon) as well as a fresco depicting Ippolita Scalza's Pieta life size emblazoned across the sacristy. Unless you're there at the right time, it will be locked.
We moved on further, around the last corner before Porta Maggiore, and came upon yet another old church, this one converted to a different public use these days. On the other side of the walk cats were ravenously attacking a meal of some description.
It was almost with some sadness that the walk finished and the escalators carried us upwards again. It's an experience I heartily recommend you consider during your visit. Allow two hours.

Pretty town in the Sky

by moacha


The north 120km in Rome, Orvieto swell up the land into the plain.
The history of Orvieto is old and goes back to the Etruria age before the B.C. ancient Roman age.
The golden age was built as a pope's isolated village in the 13th century.
This towm is so small that the end of a town to another end does not have no less than 2km.
There is magnificent Duomo at the center, for such a small town . It is so big!
Duomo is the symbol of this town.

"Alleyway to the center of this town"

The rows of houses along the street which goes to the west from Duomo leave the medieval images.
It is intolerably attractive for me,on the ground of my favorite stones.
There is called " Quartiere Vecchio "
Probably, you will be good to enjoy a stroll.

"The view from this town"

If you go to the corner of this town, you can see the splendid countryside surrounding Orvirto.
These views are so wonderful.
It is as if magic, I have the feeling which am in clouds.
I lapse into the illusion which am looking down on the mountains and the town from the sky.

In case like this, you can feel the most charm of this town.
