ORVIETO in Umbria

Orvieto is one of Italy’s most fascinating towns with historic buildings and walls majestically rising out of a steep tuffa butte overlooking bucolic hills and valleys.  

If you can imagine, once upon a time Orvieto was named “Urbus Vetus” by the ancient Etruscans who once populated this once major center some 2,500 years ago before being conquered by the Romans. Vestiges of this once-great civilization still exist in museums and in the Etruscan Necropolis at the base of the cliff.

The Middle Ages have left their mark with remarkable architecture including the late 13th-century Cathedral of Orvieto that dominates Piazza del Duomo and the town’s skyline.  Its facade is a masterpiece of bas-reliefs, sculptures, and a golden mosaic frontage that glows whenever the sun smiles upon it.

The interior of the Cathedral is nothing short of a museum with richly frescoed chapels, as well as the Chapel of the Corporal that houses the reliquary with the corporal of the miracle of Bolsena

While in Orvieto, will also have some free time for shopping for hand-painted ceramics or other local artisan works of art, and enjoy a stroll along the spacious streets lined with a variety of shops, markets, wine shops (enoteche), and boutiques.

Orvieto is well regarded for its white wines made from a blend of primarily Grechetto and Trebbiano grapes. Wines produced in this region date back to the early Etruscan civilization, and they are available dry (secco), slightly sweet (abboccato), semi-sweet (amabile), and sweet (dolce). Thanks to the unique soil types of this region that range from limestone and tufa of volcanic origins, wines produced in Orvieto are among the best wines in Italy!

Your journey continues into the Tuscany region to the town of Montepulciano, a majestic hilltop town brimming with interesting architecture, local charm, excellent wine, and breathtaking views of its surrounding valleys and soft rolling hills that are characteristic of Tuscany’s legendary landscape.

Montepulciano was built on a ridge of Monte Poliziano in the province of Sienna in southern Tuscany.  As with Orvieto, Montepulciano’s history is quite ancient having once been an ancient Etruscan city named Nocera Alfaterna. During the Middle Ages, it was controlled by Florence, but in 1260 it was conquered by Sienna.

Tuscany region is world famous for its exceptional wines, but Montepulciano is indeed the “King of all Wines” according to the 17th-century poet Francesco Redi as described in his famous poem, “Bacchus in Tuscany”.

The Noble Wine of Montepulciano (Vino Nobile di Montepulciano), is one of Tuscany’s classic reds preferred by Italy’s aristocracy and royalty since the 15th century and considered a noble wine for the table of nobles.

The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano has also been elevated to the prestigious DOCG status - Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita, guaranteeing its exceptionally high standards and quality.

Montepulciano’s most popular square is the spacious Piazza Grande, situated on top of the town surrounded by imposing palaces and the town’s Cathedral. The outer city walls provide captivating views of Valley of Chiana immaculately cultivated with a patchwork of colorful fields surrounded by gentle hills.
