Orvieto, Italy

On the way from Rome to Siena, there is a little town named Orvieto.
We stopped there for a few hours and had lunch and visited their cathedral.
You wander through the little streets and all of a sudden you turn the corner
and are blown away by the beauty in front of you!
(This is true in every town we were in.)

Look at these stripes!!! Makes me think of Teesha Moore for sure!
It's alternating layers of white travertine with blue-grey basalt stone.
I loved it!!!

The Cathedral of Orvieto is a large 14th-century Roman Catholic cathedral.
(couldn't get the wiki link to work)

And a wedding had just taken place...... I should do a post just on weddings we stumbled upon while we were in Italy and Switzerland and London!!!

Love the bride! And the little flower girl was precious!

       More soon.............
