Orvieto

After a week in Sardegna, the site seeing continued. Back to Rome then off for a day trip to Orvieto, a walled city a couple of hours away. We also stopped at Civita di Bagnoregio, a dead city founded 2,500 years ago. Now it’s just coffee and postcards…and gorgeous views.

And on to Orvieto where we headed for the Duomo, one of the best in Italy. It was a second trip for Paul, Phoebe and me. We visited and loved a great restaurant the first time, so we wrangled a table again for our group of 8. Things didn’t go nearly as well as they did on our first visit. Service was spotty, slow and grumpy. Uncle Mike took Estelle out for a walk while we waited and waited and waited for the bill. We thought about the famed underground tour but didn’t have time after all. Maybe on our third trip…
