  • Duomo - Cathedral

    Orvieto Things to Do

    In our lengthy trip through Italy we saw many churches. The Orvieto Duomo in my opinion along with the ones in Firenze, Sienna and Pisa are the most visually stunning. With Orvieto's twisting labryrnth of streets getting a distant view of the cathedral is impossible from the old town. Instead the cathedral suddenly appeared as we walked down a...

    Aside from a great place to visit the area around Orvieto produces some good inexpensive wines. We found white wines to be more common and popular but there is a small amount of red wine also being produced. We visited no wineries in the Orvieto area and with my somewhat limited speaking of Italy I had some trouble at first figuring out the type of...

  • How to reach Gubbio

    Gubbio Transportation

    Gubbio does not have a railway station, which makes it a bit of a proper planning to get there by public transport. The nearest railway station is in Fossato di Vico, approx. 20 km southeast of Gubbio. But since there are only a few buses from there, it might not make much sense to take this option. Better is to travel to Perugia and take a bus...

    On an exceptionally lovely, warm spring evening in Umbria, my husband and I were searching in Todi for "al fresco" dining, but all the piazza restaurants seem to be closed for the evening.

    Bevagna Off The Beaten Path

    As already mentioned, in addition to the river Clitunno spring there is a little temple close by. It seems to have built in 4th to 6th century. The historians are not exactly sure about the date, as material was used from older buildings and temples (very much common practice as I found here and there in Umbria). Maybe there was even once a pagan...

    Norcia Things to Do

    Opposite of Palazzo Comunale is a small and cute building, which looks more like a fort that should sit on a peninsula to defend the country. And yes, a fort is it, called Castellina. It was built according to the plans of Vignola, one of Italy’s 16th century master builders, who also had Il Gesù in Roma built. Inside is a nice little courtyard and...

It was here, in 217 B.C., in the hills of the lake’s northwestern shore, west of Tuoro. It is a bit difficult to find, because there are not many signs. Drive on the main road,...
