Etruscan Mysteries – Pitigliano and the south of Tuscany
From Orvieto to the Tyrrhenian Sea
You will begin in Orvieto, a medieval town built on top of sheer cliff faces. This ancient city offers some of the most spectacular panoramas in all of Italy, as well as incredible Gothic, Romanesque & Renaissance architecture. Yet perhaps most incredible is the city beneath the city, an underground metropolis dug deep into the volcanic rock from the 5th century B.C. The subterranean city has over 1200 tunnels, hundreds of galleries, massive cellars & even the remains of an ancient olive oil press. From Orvieto, you can hop from village to village over the hills & through forests, stopping along the way at Pitigliano, a historic town with a synagogue dating back to the 1500s. From there continue to the Saturnia hot springs, where you can relax in the warm waters beneath a shimmering waterfall. Your journey will end by the sea, where you can hike along the coast & sunbathe in the pristine beach coves.
