Villa Fiore sits on the sunny hills overlooking the medieval village of Orvieto, a small city of great antiquity in the heart of Umbria. It is home to the Palazzo Soliano, a papal palace from the Middle Ages. Go back even further, millions of years, and this land was a seabed, laden with shells and minerals. Today it is perched 400 meters above sea level, but the soil retains the richness of those nutrients and fossilized shells and, as a result, yields the finest, most flavorful produce. Villa Fiore is an easy 90-minute drive from Rome-Fiumicino International Airport.
