Travels With John. On the Same Trip in 2007 as Salina Above.

The view from the ramparts of Orvieto, in the garden of the palazzo we stayed in.  We were in the Guard House apartment.
Also from the palazzo garden.
The Palazzo, a former Bishop's residence if I remember correctly.
The funicular rail car from the city of Orvieto down to the train station and the new city, Orvieto Scalo.
In the medieval hilltop village of Todi
Lunch on the steps of the Cathedral.
A shop window in Perugia...much more interesting than the city.
From the ramparts of Perugia's old city.
The main square beside the unfinished Cathedral of Perugia.
John in the underground Etruscan city of Orvieto.  The mountain the city is built on is honeycombed with tunnels, dovecotes, stables and store-rooms that date back before Rome.
In an underground dovecote in Orvieto.
 Ready to move on from Orvieto.
The Flavian Amphitheater
John saw the orange and green combo in a lot of the local fashion houses, so he bought a green pair of pants in the weekly market in Orvieto(not pictured) and the orange scarf.  He absolutely loved that scarf and wore it all the time.  This is John in our hotel by the train station in Rome.  Yes...that is a rubber chicken in the bag!
Poor Guido got washed out...he is still happy to be out of the bag though.  This is the Ninfeum of the Egerian nymph in the Cafarella Park just south of Rome on the Via Appia Antica.
The same spot in an etching by Piranesi

In the Parco Cafarella.  Modern spelling is Caffarella.
In Piazza del Popolo in Rome.
From the same spot looking toward Trinita Dei Monte.
