The guided tour of “Orvieto Underground” starts from the ticket office in Piazza del Duomo, 23 and after a few steps… there are the underground rooms excavated in the heart of the cliff. Here the charm of the underground, the suggestion of the archaeological remains of various eras and a shrewd illumination snatches from the darkness of the hypogeum, kidnap the visitor who realizes that he is no longer just a “tourist”, but that he has now transformed into a “traveler”… and more precisely into a “time traveler”. The Etruscan, Medieval, Renaissance remains that the underground has hidden and preserved are shown, while the centuries and millennia flow like sand in the hourglass and the distant breath of “time”, skillfully evoked by specialized personnel who conduct guided tours, wraps and embrace those present. The guided tour is in groups of a maximum of thirty people at set times. During the route there are several visiting areas and the guide will explain the geological and historical aspects of the caves.
