Travel: Tuscany Tour - Day 3: Orvieto, Bagnoregio, Siena

Day 3: Rome >> Orvieto >> Bagnoregio >> Siena (our base for the next 5 nights). To get to Orvieto, we rode a funicular from the road to the fortified, hilltop city (it's on a butte). There, we took a guided grotto tour followed by a lunch overlooking the countryside. Pictured above is me in front of some random bench in Orvieto. To get to the medieval town of Civita di Bagnoregio, one has to take a long, narrow bridge, since it, too, is situated above ground. Once in the town, we had a wine tasting and plenty of time to take photos (see below). In Siena, we had a tour of Piazza del Campo, Palazzo Pubblico, and the Cathedral. We stayed at Sangallo Park Hotel, in the heart of Tuscany, for the next 5 nights.
