Our home base: Orvieto

So far Orvieto has been an amazing home base for our program!  The people here are absolutely wonderful!

We have done tons of things since we have reached Orvieto.  We have climbed to the top of the clock tower in the middle of the city, walked to the Etruscan Necropolis, and have toured some of the underground caves.

This charming little medieval city is perched on top of a large hill of tufa stone that is riddled with a network of caves, with some dating all the way back to when the Etruscan people lived in the area around 600 BCE.  There are some fairly fantastic views! Orvieto is truly picturesque.
