An easy 20 minutes’ drive down the E45 brought us to the outskirts of the town. Signs directed us to the Porta Orvietana, a large car park at the foot of the old town. We discovered that you buy a token which pays for your parking and also for the lift which takes you up to the top. This lift is a bit like a little rack-and-pinion railway which wafts you up a little rail-track, giving good views of the surrounding area. (more…)
