Umbria seems to be awash in fog in January. It made for some interesting driving and low spirits as we left Orvieto. We weren't too sure what we wanted to do with today.

While a reasonable location for walking around the city, parking was a bit of a pain. But the worst was the fire alarm going off at 4:30am (likely due to some idiot who failed to read the vividly posted signs about no smoking in the rooms due to the fire alarm) and then the water tank for the toilet making a horrible screaming noise for about 5 minutes after flushing. The beds were hard and squeaky. We opted not to try the breakfast. I would not recommend.
