Orvieto


Today we visited a nearby town called Orvieto. It is an Umbrian town built high on the top of some almost-vertical cliffs made from volcanic rock. The main feature in Orvieto is perhaps the duomo (cathedral) that dates back to the 13th century. The side walls are plain stripes of white and black, whereas the front facade is a complete contrast with lots of sculptures and paintings in gold and many other colours. 

Another interesting feature to visit in Orvieto is the 'underground city', which is a labyrinth of caves and tunnels. Many of the homes of noble families included these tunnels, to be used as a mean of escape during a siege. The tunnels were continuously dug over about 2500 years and the history is evident as you explore them.


After Orvieto we felt all hot and bothered and decided to have a quick dip in the pool, before getting ready for a dinner of salad and salmon pasta.

Necklace - New Look (Similar)

I love the colours in this kimono, and it's the perfect cover-up around the pool as well. And I'm loving anything with tassels on at the moment, so I kind of had to get this necklace!
