Things to do in rainy weather?

Hi everyone, we are leaving for Italy in two weeks and will be staying in - and exploring - Umbria for a week and a half.

While I know advance weather predictions can be unreliable it appears most of the days we will be there will be rainy.

We have been to Umbria before and have gone to some amazing Etruscan museums, but this time were really looking forward to exploring some Etruscan tombs, sites, and towns in the area.

Any suggestions re: things to do/see when it's raining in the region, in case these weather predictions turn out to be true?

Thanks,

JLH

Bring an umbrella! In the 10 years of my life here, the rain tends to come down more as drizzle than as heavy storms.

Some things to do when it rains:

Shop in Orvieto & do the Underground tour

See the Etruscan Museum & underground & tombs in Chiusi

Check out the National Museum in Perugia

Sip wine in Citta della Pieve at the Enoteca Saltapicchia

Take a cooking class

These are great suggestions and what I am looking for, thanks! I felt it was unusual for the forecast to call for so many days of rain in a row and am hoping we get some sunny days thrown in since we hope to also venture into places where we've never been to, like Civita di Bagnoregio, Sorano, Sovana, Pitigliano, Saturnia, and Viterbo.
