Home / 20160403 Italy / Orvieto - Underground 12

Orvieto is built on a limestone hill. Etruscans dug wells. Starting in the Dark Ages residents would excavate stone for their buildings from under their lot and thereby form caves extending 60 feet and more below the surface. Other caves were used for commerce - milling and poultry.
