I'd read many reviews about where to stay and decided on La Casa di Tufo. It really paid off.
Jasmine, the owner, was away but the couple standing in for her were amazing! Luoli and Bob (Roberto) were incredible hosts. Luoli found out that I was gluten intolerant and got me some special supplies - so thoughtful. After breakfast she even walked us over to a small beautiful church that we had missed and recommended a great walk. It was also so interesting to hear about their life between Orvieto and Rome. Luoli, I loved meeting you and hope to do so again.
Bob, you thought your English wasn't quite good enough but it was, and we loved your sense of humour - we enjoyed having our romantic photo taken. :)
If anyone reading this is concerned about this BnB being on the other side of town, please don't be. We found this to be the nicest part as it is very old and walking here is stunning and a bit quieter. Transport is fine - we caught a taxi after the funicular as we didn't want to walk with our bags on such a hot day. The taxi was quick and reasonable but Jasmine also provided alternative options and this would have been fine as the town is actually very walkable.
We really regretted only booking the one night. After big cities, Orvieto was a great respite and it has been our favourite place in Italy. Don't miss walking down the incredible well near the funicular. This town has some real gems and this BnB is one of the.
