Orvieto is a spectacular town of Etruscan origin that stands on a massive tabletop of tuff in southwestern Umbria, overlooking the Paglia river valley.
The town has a rich art and cultural heritage, and holds the magic and power of three thousand years of history, visible in its medieval urban structure that has remained unchanged over time.
With its centuries-long tradition as a pottery town, it is a member of the Italian Association of Ceramics Towns ("Artistic and Traditional Ceramics" national seal).
