Orvieto is one of the most striking, memorable, and enjoyable hill towns in central Italy. 13 miles from Lake Bolsena, 68 miles from the sea (Argentario), 75 from Rome, 118 from Florence, Orvieto sits majestically atop a massive chunk of Tufo volcanic stone, high above the valley floor, overlooking the cypress-dotted Umbrian plains. Right in the historic center, close to one of the most beautiful Duomos in Italy, a lovely 1 bed / 1 bath furnished apartment of 850 sqft on the primo piano (second floor), in a palace from the 1600' which was made out of an old medieval tower. The apartment was recently renovated. It has a spacious living room, kitchen, a large bedroom with a mezzanine, and 300 sqft of storage below the bedroom. The storage area is convenient to the apartment and would be easily converted into another room.
You have great restaurants, wine bars, and every service at your doorstep. The train station, which is very well connected with the main cities, is reachable in a few minutes through a funicular, one of the first built in the world. Orvieto was a papal city, it has an incredible Etruscan necropolis and the famous Umbria Jazz Festival. Let's drink a toast with a great Orvieto wine to this fantastic find. Cheers!!
