You may well want to visit Orvieto after seeing this interactive 3D aerial panorama by AirPano which, personally, I think is fabulous. As a result of seeing it, I think I’ll pay a visit to Orvieto in 2015.
As you will see, aside from Orvieto itself and its stunning cathedral, the surrounding Umbria region countryside looks mighty inviting too. And that’s before mentioning all the gastronomic delights and cute little shops you’ll come across.
You can also watch this 3D aerial panorama in full-screen mode – which is worth doing. There’s music so if you are at work, you should perhaps turn the volume down before hitting play. Beware though, after watching it, you’ll probably end up hunting for hotels and checking the prices of flights too. You have been warned. If you do fall for Orvieto’s charm, I doubt you’ll regret seeing it in the flesh.
AirPano also has 3D aerial panoramas of other cities in Italy and all are worth viewing.
Perhaps Italy’s tourist boards should consider commissioning a few, or even, a lot more. I think they’d help boost tourism to Italy very effectively. Would you agree?
