Orvieto (Umbria)

Orvieto is a city in the Province of Terni, southwestern Umbria. The territory of Orvieto was under papal control long before it was officially added to the Papal States; it remained a papal possession until 1860, when it was annexed to unified Italy. Orvieto Cathedral is a large 14th-century Roman Catholic cathedral dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and situated in the town of Orvieto in Umbria, central Italy. Formerly the episcopal seat of the Diocese of Todi, it has been since 1986 that of the Diocese of Orvieto-Todi.

What others are saying about Umbria

Can anyone help please? I purchased a small apartment in Umbria in October 2018. In 2019 I engaged the services of a local tradesman to clearout my basement which was kneedeep in rubble from the previous owner.

Buongiorno tutti.  We have owned a home in Ficulle for about 5 years.  Our caretaker and his wife have recently told us they will no longer be able to care for our home.  So we are in need of help to clean, care for our 80 vines, 30 very young olive trees, take care of the lawn, plants welcome gu

@Montie55 asks:

Hi everyone, we have a property in Mirabella, Panicale but live in the UK.  With not being able to get out there at the moment are looking for some help with maintenance.  Does anyone have a contact for an English speaking person or company that could help?
