Last Friday we went to Orvieto, which is a small hillside town about one hour by train outside of Rome. It was a beautiful little town that you took a funiculare with up to the top. The first thing that you see is a huge duomo, which is one of the most intricate churches that I have ever seen. The views from this town are spectacular, especially when you climb the clock tower (which was like 10000 stairs to get up to the top!) but definitely worth it. Cinghiale, which is wild boar, is in season right now along with Tartufo (truffle) both of which I got to eat and they were both DELICIOUS!
