It was kind of nice to get out for a nature walk; however, we ran into some trouble at one part when we were following the path along the base of the city walls and the path kept getting more and more overgrown. Finally we...More

The walk around the whole base is about 5km and very interesting. You can see a number of historical sites along the walk although access to most of the caves is not possible. You can get some good views of the surrounding area as well...More

Not a bad "walk" around the base of the city. Unfortunately the city seems to have ignored it as a tourist spot. Not well keep and scattered trash in many spots...especially where kids throw paper airplanes off of the Rocca. About 5k and up and...More

My wife and I took this walk for a little exercise with scenery. The views were not as good as those at the top of the cliff and the pathway was rather boring. The only interesting part was the view of the Cliffside and the...More

Walkig around the base of Orvieto's hill makes for a nice walk, but the signage is poor. We ended up doubling back a few times when the signs indicated two different directions to take and one of them was a dead end. Also, several of...More
