Is Orvieto with a car a good home base for exploring Umbria?

Jump to last reply

My sister and I will be staying in the Umbria area for 5-6 nights in early Oct. Is Orvieto a nice town for a home base? We will have a car for only this part of our trip. Destinations: Assisi, Cortona and a few other smaller towns. We would like a base with good restaurants/shopping/exploring etc. and a place we can enjoy for about two full days out of 5-6.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions or help you can give us. We will be arriving by train from Florence and will continue on from Umbria stay to Rome by train.
