It is believed that today's rock, where the city of Orvieto stands today, is one of these great masses of tufa rock from the large crater that is now the Bolsena Lake. The Etruscans inhabited Orvieto until the III Century BC, and consequently the Romans invaded it. It took the Romans two years to conquer Orvieto, which is a natural fortress, surrounded by cliffs. The Etruscans had an intricate web of caves and numerous wells, in order to defend Orvieto for a long time. In addition to the high quality cuisine (i.e. truffles), the city boasts an incredible Gothic Cathedral with a frescoed "Last Judgment" to rival Michelangelo's one, a labyrinth of ancient underground and St.Patrick's Well.
