As rail stations go, this is hard to beat for a small town. Friendly and well appointed (food, cafe, WC), the station is close to bus, taxi and funiculare to the town on the rock.

We road the train from Orvieto to Florence. It was easy to get our tickets and find the right platform. There are several steps to the platform and ticket office. There are English speaking tickets agents, who are friendly and helpful.

The train station has bathroom facilities and a place to have a bite to eat. What more do you need when waiting for your train. It also has nice views of the area.

We purchased our tickets in advance on line thru Rail Europe. We had 4 train tickets. When we went to print out our tickets prior to leaving the US, Orvieto and its connection at Rome Tiburetina came up as "print at station". In Orvieto, we asked where to print as we saw nothing. Agent said our paper was good enough.... More

Although the employees are helpful, the railroad station is pretty grungy. The escalator and elevator haven't worked in YEARS. Food is available. The station is in desperate need of a good cleaning and refurbishing. Get your tickets for the funicular, which is across the street, at the news stand in the station.

I have found that most employees at the train stations in Italy are willing to help, but the ones at the Orvieto train station go above and beyond to help tourist with limited Italian get to where they want to go. One employee helped me buy train tickets for the rest of my three week trip through Italy. He offered... More

Over the years I've used this station a great deal. I even commuted to Rome for a couple of years. Recently we took a train to Naples. No problem with the train and none with the ticket office. The train was even on time. However, the station, which used to be functional, has been virtually abandoned by whatever agency has... More

You can arrive on the fast train from Rome in about an hour, and then across from the Orvieto station is the funiculare station (the little tram that runs up the hill, to Orvieto). The station sells the funiculare tickets, as well as sandwiches, gelato, coffee, etc. (Word of warning: If you're not paying attention, Orvieto and Orbetello look remarkably... More

The panini's were some of the best. Take one on the train for your travels. The entire setting was very charming. It is obviously a local hangout for many coming up and down the funciular.
