Orvieto is a city in southwestern Umbria, situated on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tufa. The site of the city is among the most dramatic in Europe, rising above the almost-vertical faces of tufa cliffs that are completed by defensive walls built of the same stone. The ancient city (urbs vetus in Latin, whence "Orvieto") populated in Etruscan times, has usually been associated with Etruscan Velzna, but some modern scholars differ.
