My friend sara and i took a day trip to Orvieto. I had visited the town once before a few years ago but revisiting was great and there was a lot of it i hadn't seen. We missed the main market (of course) but we walked around for hours, photographing the charming streets and people of the town. We met up with Linda who lives in Orvieto. A new friend, yay! Her husband and her own a Hotel/Hostel in Rome called the Bee Hive i love visiting little towns in Italy. This one is pretty easy and inexpensive to get to.
