Create an itinerary including Orvieto Underground
More than a geological attraction, Orvieto Underground offers tours of an underground city. Inhabitants spent 2,500 years digging cavities into the earth, which overlap and intersect beneath the modern structure of the city. This location connects us to an ancient and mysterious pre-Roman people: the Etruscans. The caverns have served as galleries, cellars, cisterns, and more. Medieval families of nobility had access to these caves via secret escape tunnels. Wear shoes for walking up and down many steps. Tour guides speak fluent English.

  • The worst experience in Orvieto! Rude people in the ticket office, rude guides, bad organization. I do not recommend spend your time and money on this

  • Orvieto is perched on a sheer-sided volcanic tufa plug. It dates back to the Etruscan era. Entering via the escallators from the car park far below, one passes through underground rooms and streets....  more

  • Great tour! Besides the impressive caves, what I found most impressive was the view on route to the underground. The guide was also excellent in explaining the history and background. There are a few steps to go up and down. Please be careful. Also you need to book the tour in advance. You can’t just show up for the tour.
  • Highly recommended tour (you can't go without a guide and a small group) in the caves below the city. Interesting history and also a great escape from the sun in hot summer days. Ticket is only 7 Eur. Enjoy!
