suifeng2019The ancient city of Bailu Lizhio was built 2500 years ago. It is located at the top of a mountain and is connected to the outside world by a narrow long bridge. It looks like a castle floating in the sky in the distance, so it is called the city of the sky.
suifeng2019Orvieto Cathedral is also a landmark here, and its architectural style is somewhat similar to that of Siena Church. We went late, the square was empty and the atmosphere suddenly became more solemn.
不素之客Pope Deep Well! The drama "Man will conquer the sky" is actually being staged everywhere. At the time of the "Rome Dilemma" in 1527, the Pope, who transferred the strategy to Ovieto, ordered the well to be excavated, which took up to ten years. From the ground, it seems ordinary, but below it is a miraculous well with a depth of 62 meters, a diameter of 13 meters, 72 skylights and two spiral passages that do not interfere with each other.

grace-luckyLake Bolsena is the largest freshwater lake in Italy. Quiet town, the air is fresh and negative oxygen ions are high. Under the warm and sunny sun, big and big white clouds hung low above the head, and the lake was blue and sparkling. There are large groups of wild ducks on the water. White sailing boat, old man fishing leisurely by the lake. Just want to sit quietly all afternoon. A restaurant by the lake is very beautiful, with floor-to-ceiling windows, it is full of golden blue, fresh ingredients, various wines, cheap and delicious.
IvayloI will recommend pre buying Skip the line tickets so you don't spend a huge amount of time in the queue. What I did was to buy the audio guide. All you need is to either pre buy it or buy the access on the spot. You will need to download the app, put your access code, download the audio guide and bring your own headphones. If you don't bring headphones, that's fine too, you can get a pair for 1 euro from the Basilica.
Monteleone d'Orvieto is an old medieval village in the north province of Terni. It is located on one of the hills that separate Orvieto from Città della Pieve; from that area you can admire a breathtaking view that sweeps from Tuscany to Lazio. Its ancient origin seems to date back to Etruscan times. During the Middle Ages, Brandetto Castle was built around the year 1052 as a defensive stronghold. Its remains are still visitable today. Monteleone's name seems to be a tribute to Pope Leo IX, who led the Christian Church during that historical period.
Sitting on top of a big butte of volcanic tuff, Orvieto retains large signs of its Etrurian past, so much so that the first thing that stood out to me was the light brown tones across its alleys and its roads.
The Duomo cathedral is the main attraction. The church was built in the 14th century and is dedicated to the Ascending of the Virgin Mary. Aesthetically it might remind you of the more famous Cathedral of Siena, obviously because of its roman-gothic style! This one in Orvieto is one of the most significant in Italy.
Don’t miss a visit to another landmark of note, like Torre del Moro for a sunset view of the town and the surrounding hills, Pozzo di San Patrizio and Fortezza Albornoz!
Since we are in Umbria, food plays a unique role. Local cuisine is highly appreciated thanks to its cured meats and other traditional dishes. If you’re planning a road trip across Italy, don’t miss this part of the country for its authenticity.
