Day 4: Orvietto/Florence, Italy – Monday, July 6, 2015

Today we left Rome and drove to a beautiful hill town of Orvieto which has one of the most amazing cathedrals in all of Italy.  Its medieval facade with sculptures greet the visitor. Its striped basalt stone is a wonder to behold.

We visited the San Brizio chapel inside the church (Roman Catholic Cathedral in Orvieto) and viewed Luca Signorelli’s The Last Judgment.  His frescoes inspired Michelangelo.
