Castel Giorgio is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Terni in the Italian region Umbria, located about 60 km southwest of Perugia and about 60 km northwest of Terni on the Alfine Highland, facing the Lake Bolsena.
In the area of Castel Giorgio remains from prehistoric settlements, belonging to Villanovan civilization, were found in 1993. Also present are an Etruscan necropolis (3rd-2nd centuries BC) and remains of Roman villas and roads (Via Traiana Nova and Via Cassia)
The town was founded in 1477, as castle and residence for the bishop of Orvieto, Giorgio della Rovere. After several vicissitudes, the palace was restored by Cardinal Giacomo Sennesio in 1610-1620, turning it into a summer resort for the prelates of Orvieto.
Orvieto is a city in southwestern Umbria, Italy situated on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tuff. The site of the city is among the most dramatic in Europe, rising above the almost-vertical faces of tuff cliffs that are completed by defensive walls built of the same stone.
