Create an itinerary including Orvieto Underground
More than a geological attraction, Orvieto Underground offers tours of an underground city. Inhabitants spent 2,500 years digging cavities into the earth, which overlap and intersect beneath the modern structure of the city. This location connects us to an ancient and mysterious pre-Roman people: the Etruscans. The caverns have served as galleries, cellars, cisterns, and more. Medieval families of nobility had access to these caves via secret escape tunnels. Wear shoes for walking up and down many steps. Tour guides speak fluent English. To visit Orvieto Underground and get the most from your holiday in Orvieto, create itinerary details personal to you using our Orvieto sightseeing planner.

  • I didn't really know what to expect. Only 2 "caves" but the story of how they dug wells and made olive oil was interesting. Not expensive so a good way to kill an hour
  • Very interesting. You cannot visit it without a tour(which you can book in front of the Cathedral). My tour guide was a real expert. However, the accessible area is very limited so do not expect a spectacle.
