For a €6 ticket with an hour guided tour in English this is a bargain and worth the time spent. Visiting caves built 3000 years back for survival and daily lives is just amazing to witness.

Visiting the small portion of the caves open to the public (tour only) is interesting as the haves are under the whole city and most are connected to private homes.

We enjoyed the 45 minute tour of the underground caves in Orvieto. The guide was interesting and informative.

Be prepared to do some hiking. But definitely worth it. The caves are under the entire city. They were built for protection. Now mostly for storage.

While staying in Orvieto we toured the underground excavations that were under most of the homes. Used for business, manufacturing, bird raising and storage, the caverns were remarkable. The area under the homes was apparently very soft volcanic and easy to create areas under the...More

If you're wishing to do an English speaking tour make sure you check first at the office for available times, because those are only available several times through out the day (at least when we were there). We loved this tour! It was informative and...More
