ABOUT ORVIETO TOUR
Orvieto origins go back to the Etruscan civilization: first Etruscan settlements, going back to the 9th Century B.C., were found inside the tufaceous caves in the bedrock upon which rises the city.
Annexed in the 3rd Century B.C. to the territories of Rome until the decline of the Western Roman Empire. Afterwhich it became a free municipality, and during the war between Guelphs and Ghibellines, was opponent of Barbarossa, remaining faithful to the Pope.
Riding on the support of the Vatican State, it was allowed to prosper through the Medieval Period in the 13th Century, reaching the top of its development with the constitution of the General Council of the 400 and the election of the Captain of the People.
It was during this period that one saw the fervent work of erecting palaces and holy buildings among which the very famous Cathedral stands out, dating back to 1263. The most important architectural landmark of Orvieto, with its Gothic facing and the richness of the ornaments and internal chapels.
