3 Hours Before Flight Time
When you travel to Italy, it is probably those very movies that color so many expectations for first time visitors. Italy is indeed a beautiful country full of art, history, food and wine, but it is still somewhat different from the Hollywood version. For example some of the “Italian” menu items you love are incredibly regional .
Meal time is sacred. Some people think that Italy observes “siesta” time, Spanish-style. This is not the case. However, many shops and businesses do close between 1 and 4 pm. Rather than time for napping, this is time for eating, meeting friends and family, and relaxing.
Italy makes a goal in your soul !

Afternoon Guided group tour, Orvieto underground (4.00pm-5.00pm).
This is a group guided tour to get to know Orvieto’s underground world, created by its ancient inhabitants over about 2500 years of digging.
Orvieto, a millenary city suspended almost by magic between heaven and earth, has revealed another of those aspects that make it unique and extraordinary a labyrinth of grottoes is hidden in the silent darkness of the rupe (rock).
The distinctive geological nature of the mass of stone on which it stands allowed its inhabitants to dig, in the course of about 2500 years, an incredible number of cavities extending, overlapping and intersecting beneath the modern structure of the city. They make up a precious repository of historical and archaeological information, only recently studied systematically and scientifically. If the “superficial” aspect of the city has changed with the passing of time, the hypogean structures that were functional to it have remained, mostly, intact. You will come in contact with this very unusual cultural aspect of a city extremely wealthy in history and artistic “jewels”. Step after step mysterious and fascinating echoes tell of Etruscan Velzna, while phantoms of the medieval and Renaissance city appear out of the damp shadows. Wherever the winding underground route runs parallel to the rupe, from panoramic openings, daylight contends with the darkness for an apparently endless series of tunnels, stairs, unexpected passageways, overlapping rooms on whose walls you can read, in thousands of small quadrangular niches, the ancient adventure of the birth of this “underground city”.
Time at leisure in the afternoon to discover the beautiful Orvieto, to stroll around the city among artisanal laboratories, narrow streets and history
