In the Shadow of Orvieto (Umbria)
As we traveled south to Rome we stopped to visit the walled city of Orvieto, sitting on an impregnable rock from which it has guarded the road from Florence to Rome through the centuries. The countryside beneath the city is full of vineyards, olive groves and fields of wheat. Wild poppies grow along the sides of the road. The city sits in magnificent splendor, visible for miles around.
