Orvieto is a beautiful, historical city in the Umbria region of Italy.
Step outside the hoel and walk under the Town Hall arch and you'll be in Piazza della Repubblica (Republic Square) with the Chiesa di Sant Andrea (Saint Andrew's Church). From here you can walk along Orvieto's main shopping street, Corso Cavour, and discover the small shops and artisan boutiques selling traditional products and handicrafts for which Orvieto is renowned. This street takes you towards the medieval clock tower and to the left of this is Piazza del Popolo, Orvieto's biggest piazza dominated by the imposing Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo which was the seat of the Captain of the People in 1284. Today it houses a modern conference centre. The Duomo, a jewel in Italian Gothic architecture, is to the right of the clock tower, along Via del Duomo. On the other side of Piazza della Repubblica, walk along Via Filippeschi until the road forks. If you go down Via della Cava you can visit the well and its caves or by continuing along Via Malabranca you'll come to the oldest part of the medieval quarter where it is very pleasant just to meander along the lanes, taking a look at the small houses, flowered balconies and a glimpse of a courtyard. The Church of San Giovenale is in this area, near the picturesque path along the city walls where there are breathtaking views of the green Paglia Valley.
All this just 5 minutes from the hotel on foot.
