ORVIETO: WHERE ART AND GASTRONOMY MEET ON THE TOP OF A VULCANIC ROCK

by marcobellanca

The ancient Etruscan chose this place as their main religious and cultural centre, in the Middle Ages hundreds of pilgrims came here from all over the then world to worship the “Corporale”, the linen stained with the blood of Christ, and were shocked by the beauty of one of the most breathtaking cathedrals of Europe. In Orvieto streets and squares with their golden colour, churches and public buildings with their elegance, shops and wine cellars to taste the famous Orvieto wine along with wild boar cured meat , museums and underground caves, wells and temples going back to a remote past make you long to come back again.
