St. Patrick's Well was built for the water supply of the city of Orvieto in 1527. Its architect, Antonio da Sangallo, took up the challenge at the behest of Pope Clement VII. The 53-metre deep well has a double spiral staircase (248 steps each), and 72 large windows that take light from a skylight placed at the top of the monument. The famous staircase allowed pack animals to go down and up again to get water without ever meeting. While its practical purpose is no longer necessary, its beauty and intrigue has stood the test of time.
Pozzo della Cava is a cave system, and one of the many wonders of Orvieto. Visitors can explore nine caves and walk through 27 centuries of history inside a fascinating man-made cave system and see pre-Roman archaeological finds. It is located in Orvieto, Italy.
Viterbo Sotterranea is a labyrinth of underground passageways and caves under the city of Viterbo. It is believed to date as far back as the Etruscan era (900 BCE - 100 BCE). The tunnels were expanded during the medieval period and were used for covert travel and strategic movement around the city.

Inside the San Bernardo Gardens, you’ll find a 13th-century underground church dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel. Uncovered in 1979 by a group of Narni speleologists, the church now offers archaeological insight into the commune, as well as a multimedia journey that tells the story of the church – from the dungeons of the Holy Office of the Inquisition with original graffiti left by prisoners, to the upper church and its Byzantine mosaics.
The Vatican Museums are full of artistic and historical treasures by some of the world's greatest artists. Inside you’ll find epoch-defining masterpieces from Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian and Caravaggio (to name a few).
