2500 years of digging, begun by the first Etruscan inhabitants of Orvieto and continued until fairly recently, have created what can only be termed as a second city beneath the Orvieto that stands above ground. Most of this fascinating network of passages and underground streets is today open to the public and easily accessible even for the less energetic.
In just one hour visitors can get a good idea of what this surprising ï¿½underground cityï¿½ really is.
A journey into a past that has remained virtually unaltered over the millennia
