Orvieto e Civita di Bagnoregio

Orvieto e Civita di Bagnoregio 

Orvieto, a city with a historical and artistic heritage, in some respects, unique in Umbria of its kind. A “museum” city that has lived through different historical eras, some of which as a great protagonist: in particular in the Etruscan and medieval times, representing a center of considerable historical and cultural importance throughout Italy. A city of art with almost three thousand years of history that will conquer and fascinate.

Experience the unique atmosphere of the historic center, its alleys, squares and its lifestyle.
Walking through the evocative streets of the historic center you will still find shops and artisan shops where the great tradition in the processing of artistic ceramics and Irish lace stands out together with goldsmiths, leather and wood craftsmen. There are also numerous shops where you can find food and wine excellences from the Orvieto area and typical products such as the famous Orvieto DOC wine.

Civita di Bagnoregio (The dying city)

Civita di Bagnoregio is a treasure chest that contains 2500 years of history. Founded by the Etruscans, it then went through various dominations and in the Middle Ages it acquired much of its extraordinary shape, later enriched in the Renaissance and maintained until today. Here everything is a sign of a time that no longer exists, readjustment and rebirth. The suggestion and the current charm is the result of this hybridization of eras, which have met and clashed. Leaving scattered traces.

In its glorious past the inhabited center was larger. Landslides and earthquakes have reduced the extension and palaces, towers and ancient gates to the village have crumbled in the valley. In the period of maximum magnificence there were five of them, one remains: Porta Santa Maria also known as “della Cava”. Today the only possible access to the town and located at the end of the mythical bridge, which has become the symbol of the place.
