An overnight stay in Orvieto is highly recommended, and the Hotel Palazzo Piccolomini is an excellent choice for the historic district of town. During certain weeks during the summer, rooms are at half price, making the property a real value.
Strong points: Very courteous staff, extremely clean, extremely comfortable mattress and pillows, flat screen satellite TV, high-quality breakfast with scrambled eggs. Breakfast room in the cellar is fascinating, and could pass for a room in an archeological museum. Easy walking distance to Cathedral and main shopping street. City shuttle bus stop 170 meters away in Piazza Della Repubblica (next to the Cassa di Risparmio).
Weak points: some rooms are small for two adults (but adquate for one), and the bathroom in these rooms is also quite small, with a marine shower just barely adequate for many adults. Some rooms are positioned near the main hallway and consequently suffer from noise.
Directions to hotel: Take the cablelift across the square from the train station, then the local shuttle bus (daily service) to Piazza della Repubblica. A ticket for 1.30 Euros is valid on both the cablelift and the bus, and is good for 90 minutes. Get off next to the bank (Cassa di Risparmio) in this square, and walk 170 meters along Via Loggia dei Mercanti to Piazza Ranieri.
