Our day begins with a visit of ORVIETO.
Orvieto is a charming Medieval town situated on a volcanic cliff. The origins of Orvieto go back to the Etruscan civilization but the town reached the top of its development during the Middle Ages when its inhabitants started the fervent work of erecting palaces and holy buildings among which the very famous Cathedral stands out, undoubtedly the main monument of the city.
Afterwards we will have the possibility to visit a cheese producer on the hills between Orvieto and Todi from where you will have an overwhelming view on the Umbrian countryside!
Discover the secrets for the production of a very good cheese together with the owner! The farm owns a flock of goats free to walk around in a big fenced area and to return into the stable for the night. After visiting the factory and having seen the whole process of production we will have a light lunch at the farm.
Afterwards, we move to TODI.
The beautiful and elegant Medieval town of Todi stands on the top of the hill overlooking the Tevere Valley. Located just a few kilometres from Perugia and Orvieto, the town is fortified by three rings of walls containing countless treasures. Let´s begin our Todi tour from Piazza del Popolo, the heart of the city. Here you will find the most important buildings of the town, among which the administrative Medieval palaces and the Cathedral. From the Cathedral´s stairs you will definitely have the best view of the entire square! Not far away you will find St. Fortunato Church, dedicated to the saint patron of the city and built in the 13th century. Do not miss the marvellous Consolazione Temple, built in the 16th century and designed by the architect Bramante.
