While I was in Orvieto, I stayed at a convent bed and breakfast, the Istituto San Lodovico. It is centuries old and has a few beautiful frescos. The rooms are modern and comfortable.
There are several quiet nooks and crannies (one of Abby Lazar's photo themes) all around Orvieto. Below is a garden I found while walking around.
There was a garden in the Convent that had an array of buds, flowers, and decaying flowers.
In the convent library, we talked about photography and composed still lifes.
