We were very happy with our choice of La Casa di Tufo. It is located on a tiny quiet street within easy walking distance to all the sights in Orvieto. We had an upstairs room which was spacious and comfortable. The nights were silent and the bed was great, so we slept really well. We needed to stand by our door or use the common room in order to get a wireless internet connection, but that was probably an inevitable consequence of being in an old stone building. The B&B has been exquisitely renovated to offer guests a beautiful combination of old architecture and modern convenience.
I was surprised to learn that many people only spend one night in Orvieto. We stayed 3 nights, and it wasn't long enough to see everything we wanted to see. Orvieto has a lot to offer, and it is definitely worth staying more than one night and seeing more than the admittedly amazing Duomo.
Jasmin is a great hostess. She is multilingual, and she provided us with lots of useful information. One of the best suggestions was to try the bakery around the corner. We have eaten a lot of pizza, but this bakery has the best pizza I have ever tasted. Also amazing cookies.
Getting there was easy, following Jasmin's instructions. We took the funicular from the train, and then the bus (which is what we would call a mini-bus or large van) to a square which is just a block or so from the B&B.
I hope to return to Orvieto one day, and I would be happy to stay at this B&B again.
