You may be wondering why in the world I’d be posting photos of my day in Rome on a project dedicated to Orvieto? Well, it’s to illustrate one of the great things about our town: It’s smack-dab in the middle of Italy, on a main rail line and right off the autostrada. Just a quick 1-hour train ride to Rome’s historical center, Orvieto can be the perfect day trip from Rome or… MAYBE.. Rome is the perfect day trip from Orvieto? Think about it! Like! Share! Visit!
Right and don’t ask me what precision tool the Roman armies used to measure distance with (feet sounds like it as we still use it today!), but if you noticed the road signs in Bolsena’s main Piazza they read Rome 113 Km (South) and Siena 113Km North placing my Tuscia hometown smack in the middle of the Via Cassia route!
