Orvieto is famous for three things: its Cathedral, its Classico wine and its ceramics. We've only had an opportunity to walk from one end of the town to the other (20 minutes) to visit the tourist information centre. We're looking forward to Kendra arriving from Rome tomorrow. With her, we plan to fully explore Orvieto and the Umbrian country side. We may even slip back into Tuscany to visit Cortona.
We're very pleased with our apartment - despite the 60 stairs to the top floor! From the windows we have a beautiful view of the countryside. Despite the afternoon heat, the apartment stays wonderfully cool-a nice change from Florence and Rome.
We're off for what we know will be another delicious meal, this time at Mezza Luna. Maybe we'll post some pictures tomorrow. Ciao!
