This morning we made a trip in the local picturesque town of Orvietto. There is a spectacular view of the hilltop town from about half way down the lane is super, and as you approach on the small roads, it just gets better.

Parking at the bottom of the town, we walked up through the narrow cobbled streets, with beautiful sandy coloured buildings towering above. The entire town has been kept original, no non-traditional development seems to have been allowed at all.

Walking through the streets towards the Piazza Duomo with the Duomo itself towering above the rooftops as it gets revealed, certainly overpowering. The facade is intricate and highly decorative, with a weird black and white brickwork around the rest of the building.

The heat as usual was mad. Absolutely roasting. Great.
