The Paglia and Tiber rivers have spent eons washing away most of the volcanic layer of porous tufa that once covered the area around Orvieto. But they left a plug of it jutting some 315m above the plain, and its sheer walls are so defensible humans have been scurrying about atop it for thousands of years.

Hello Tiffany ,
Sometimes , looking at scene like this , we say ourselves "Why the parking is not forbidden here ?" . But I can understand that the locals appreciate to put their car close to the village . Despite of that , this is a superb view on the picturesque stoned village . I like especially the perspective with the house and the tree in the FG .
PS : Ile d'Oleron is not a french caribean island , but on the west coast of France , between Borseaux and La Rochelle .

You have found a nice lonely sight of this fantastic place! Its architecture looks so great with these stone buildings and walls.
Very well executed image with good light management and saturation result. TFS.

classiche costruzioni fatte con il tufo, si vedono anche le rocce che cadono a strapiombo.
Orvieto è molto bella e particolare e merita sicuramente una visita approfondita.
