Orvieto in Umbria Italy

At the border of Lazio, a short distance from Rome, this territory is positioned between the most important lines of communication and is, therefore, easily reached.
There is a wide variety of landscapes here : green pastures, vineyards, olive groves and lush forestes, all of which are reflected in the fresh water of brooks, lakes (Piediluco, Corbara).
The city of Orvieto, positioned high up on a tuff crag, dominates the landscape. Orvieto, which was an important Etruscan centre, is rich with highly prized archaelogical findings, possible to visit as it is possible to visit those of Narni.
