"Could have been a lot better."
Close to the border where Umbria meets Tuscany and Lazio, the city of Orvieto and the western corner of Umbria occupy a stunning and uncontaminated countryside that ranges from basalt and tufa precipices in the volcanic hinterland to rolling hills and alluvial plains of the Paglia and Tiber rivers, both of which are now regional parks. It is a history-rich area, which has seen much action since the Etruscans first inhabited the area some 3,000 years ago.
"Lists, lists and more lists"
Most visitors arriving from the hustle and crowds of busy Florence cannot help but fall under the charm of Siena's gracefully winding (and pedestrianized) medieval streets. Laid out on the slopes of three steep hills (the historical terzi or "thirds" of the city), the center of town, geographically and emotionally, is the fan-shaped and gently sloping, redbrick Piazza del Campo, a wonderfully preserved monument to Siena's medieval heyday when merchants, bankers, and artists flocked here and some of the city's greatest monuments were constructed.
Beautifully situated in the medieval heart of Umbria, Assisi is one of the most popular sightseeing and pilgrimage destinations in Italy. Not only does it have a historical center of distinguished monuments, collections of art, and breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, but it sits on the doorstep of the Parco Regionale Monte Subasio (Mt. Subasio Regional Park). It is also tied with the legacy of its best-known son, St. Francis.
Every romance begins differently, but for the ones that last, there's always a moment when you decide to commit - we call it your commit-moment.

This episode features "Wet Feet" by Emma Weisfeld for The Narrators, and "How Nick's Mind Works" by Lesley Jones for Bawdy Storytelling.
