Do I need a car to visit Orvieto?

Going to Orvieto for one night, but hotel is Locanda Rosati (8km away from Orvieto). Not sure if it is a good idea to rent a car to see the area, or just take taxis everywhere. May fall in love with the area and stay another night.

Locanda Rosati is one of the most amazing places in Orvieto but having a car would be more easy to travel and visit the area.....maybe one more night sounds better!

With enough advance notice, Mr. Rosati can be pursuaded to pick you up at the train station. Not only did he pick us up, but later in the day he drove us back into the town so we could spend a few hours sightseeing while he did errands. We did, however, have to take a taxi the next morning in order to catch a very early train. Believe cab fare was about 20 euro ... but cheap compared to renting a car.

You won't regret staying at Locando Orvieto ... but be sure to have dinner there. It's not necessarily "fine dining" but well worth the extra money. Mr. Rosati is a terrific host and the laughs, wine, and grappa never stop at the communal table.

car??? dont need one!! the train station goes straight to the cable car (funiculare) that cost .90euro and goes up to Orvieto! straight to the heart! then you can walk the entire width of the town of Orvieto in 30minutes! So nice this place, been there soooo many times. Cars are lazy!
