Around Orvieto -- the Percorso Rupe

This completes the circuit around the walls of Orvieto -- the Percorso Rupe -- which I began in 2009. These views are from the path on the southern side returning to the city through the Porta Rocca in the Fortezza Albornoz. See my walk on the Northern portion of the Percorso Rupe -- http://www.pbase.com/mclew/orvieto_rupa
