it's not really an "attraction" per se, but the espressos and cappucinos and croissants are first rate

I've spent a few moments in the station, either waiting for friends to arrive, or waiting for a train for myself.....They revently revamped the entire station restaurant and it is... read more

The station agent was very rude. He would not help us change our reservation time and said it could not be done. Though we have heard so much English from tourists here in Orvieto, , he said he knew no English. When we got to Rome at the train station, the agent quickly changed our time.

I've spent a few moments in the station, either waiting for friends to arrive, or waiting for a train for myself.....They revently revamped the entire station restaurant and it is a big improvement. The pastries are very fresh, coffees are excellent, and the prices are more than reasonable. This is a real station for the dozens of daily Orvietani who... More

small station, friendly ticket lady who printed the all the tickets for the rest of our trip. We took a taxi from the station up to town because we did not want to have to drag our bags from the funicular to our hotel, which was near the Duomo. Good decision, even after the funicular takes you 1000 feet up... More

If you're -at all - worried about travel logistics for an Orvieto visit, don't. It's a small station, directly across from the funicular. Full Disclosure: We're a reasonably fit, mature couple and, although we each had a roller and personal bag, we were - THANKFULLY - met at the station. I would not wanted to have to make that "pack...

helpful ticket agent, adequate space to wait inside for your train, coffee shop near by, just across the street from the funiculare to Orvieto proper.

It's a shame. Orvieto is a beautiful town and the train station could be lovely; even has marble wainscoting and steps. But, it is just plain dirty. Ticket agent helpful. Where you buy the funicular ticket, it was hard to even get the lady's attention.

I was anxious to get up to Orvieto when I arrived in the train station. I was looking for the funicular and almost neglected to actually look at the train station I was in. The trip from Rome had included some pretty ugly stations along the way (lots of graffiti and such), but when I got to Orvieto, it was... More

Beautiful old fashioned rail station, very close to the old historic center of the city, the rail station is charming and very well preserved. Worth the visit.

Was a bit worried about catching the funiculare up to old Orvieto as we had no info on how long it would take or how often. Only takes 5 minutes and leaves every 10 minutes, so not to worry! Does get rather busy and cramped with each train load of people that arrives, but oh so cute!
