Sunrise, sunset, Orvieto style

I can’t decide which I like best…sunrise or sunset. Both look wonderful in Orvieto.

An early morning walk around the edge of town revealed the fields below covered by fog.

The other side of the town, at the end of the day was just as lovely.

  21. Such a pretty place! We stumbled upon it once on our way between Rome and Florence and I’m so glad we did! We didn’t spend much time there as it was just a quick stop, but I’d love to stay in the old part. Did you stay in a B&B, or did you just spend the day there?
