This walk takes you around the outside of Orvieto. You can see some sites and some nature on a clear nice day.

Not a bad "walk" around the base of the city. Unfortunately the city seems to have ignored it as a tourist spot. Not well keep and scattered trash in many spots...especially where kids throw paper airplanes off of the Rocca. About 5k and up and...More

Not too scenic and it could use a little better trail marking in a couple of spaots but a pleasant walk that had me puffing on some of the hills.
