Many steep steps, but worth every one. Great tour with an appropriate mix of history, geography and geology that puts one in the Etruscan and Middle Ages. Our guide was excellent and although doing six tours a day, kept an enthusiasm level that made our...More

The ticket will allow you to see two caves with a guide. Our guide was incredibly informative and interesting. You will learn about the history of Orvieto in addition to seeing the caves. Our group of teenagers really enjoyed it.

We had a guide named rosita who was really informative. The caves were very interesting and I think it is a good place to visit. Probably not so good if you have limited mobility.

We had a tour of the caves with an English speaking Italian guide who was most informative. I highly recommend taking the tour.

Orvieto was beautiful and the history of the cave systems was interesting and entertaining, able to keep 9 teenagers entertained for about and hour. The route was fairly easy with only a few places where you need to climb or duck your head and it...More

This approximate 1 hour tour is quite educational with regard to the Etruscan, Roman and medieval uses of “The Rock” of Orvieto and its numerous caves. Trip Advisor should change the title of this to Orvieto Underground though as the tour is known. Facing the...More
