You'll find Orvieto's train station in Piazzale Gramsci on the eastern edge of the city. It's a main-line station on the Rome to Milan route. The Piazzale is the city's transport centre, not only for trains, buses and taxis, but it also has a funicular railway station too. This links this lower level of the city with the old centre on top of the rock pinnacle. Visitors can of course pick up a hire car at Orvieto Station too and that allows them to drive to the higher part of the city and explore the sights of the surrounding area.
The old medieval heart of Orvieto is perched on a giant volcanic rock outcrop. Among the narrow streets of this defensive stronghold you'll find the striking black-and-white Duomo cathedral with gruesome apocalyptic frescoes inside. You can tour the underground tunnels containing ancient wells and pigeon farms or simply relax at a pavement café in the Piazza del Duomo. Elsewhere there's a papal palace, several museums and several pretty churches. Perhaps most memorable, however, are the views across the rolling hills of Umbria. Fancy a day trip? If you've got a hire car from Orvieto railway station there's a fabulous choice, including Rome, Perugia and Siena.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
