Orvieto: streets with panoramic views

Orvieto clusters on a tufaceous ledge inhabited since Etruscan times. Tufa is everywhere: it is the material with which the buildings were constructed, in which the roads, the necropolis and the entire underground city (now open to visitors) were built. The narrow streets often open onto the characteristic landscape around the town, repeatedly depicted in the great Italian paintings, a landscape that unrolls like a fresco along the pedestrian path that surrounds the town.
