So well served is it by rail, road and motorway that Orvieto means wanting to go there… and already being there.

It can be said that one of the genes present in the DNA of the city of Orvieto is that of being, in ancient times as today, along important and convenient traffic routes that make this charming destination easy to reach from anywhere.

The rivers Tiber, Paglia and Chiani, that flow through the territory around Orvieto and were at one time navigable, were the early routes of communication of considerable importance and the remains of the river port of Pagliano, dating back to the Roman period, can still be seen about 5 kilometres from the city.

Currently, both from the north and the south, Orvieto can be reached by train (railway station along the Rome-Florence line, about 100 kilometres north of the capital) or by motorway (A1, Orvieto tollgate).

From the east you follow the panoramic main road 448 which links it to Todi, twisting and turning along the distinctive Forello Gorge, deeply and sinuously eroded by the Tiber river.

From the west, main road 71, taken by those arriving from nearby Lake Bolsena and anywhere throughout the province of Viterbo, presents the most classic view of the city: after a few kilometres lazily covered on a plateau virtually without slopes, the road appears to fall headlong into a deep and wide valley in the middle of which, in perfect isolation, the Rupe of Orvieto rises, mysterious and fascinating, bristling with towers, spires, bell towers, with the glitter at sunset of the golden reflections that the mosaics of the Duomo send back to the sun.
