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!

We arrived at this station from Venice via Bologna. We immediately purchased the Carta Unica from the agent in the station. This pass gave us many discounts at the Orvieto museums and attractions and restaurants. It also included the round trip ticket on the funicular and the use of the mini bus. It was well worth the 20 euro per... More

When driving to Orvieto the easiest parking is just north of the train station. You then go through the station to the funicular which takes you up to the top where a bus takes you to the central piazza, by the Duomo. The ticket for the funicular covers the bus ride. You can purchase a return at the café just... More

While the train station is small with only 2 lines, and yes, the escalators don't work so you will be required to carry your luggage up the stairs, the food in the café is extremely good! I recommend that you buy your lunch there to enjoy on your train ride, especially if you are catching the next extension to Napoli.... More

I'm not sure what level of service people expect at a rail station. Have you ever been into a rail or metro station at home and got gleaming friendly customer service - I haven't. Anyway, we arrived into Orvieto Station by train from Rome. It is a small station with only two platforms, so you won't get lost finding your... More

Came in by train in the late evening ... unfortunately during a downpour. Rather than venture across the street to the funicular for a ride up to the Duomo square and our B and B, we just grabbed the one taxi waiting at the station. Glad we did. There is a small café in the station ... and other restos... More

You would think workers in travel services, like public transit, anywhere, including Rome and Orvieto (tourist destinations), might be trained in customer service. The ticket agents we dealt with in Orvieto and in Rome's termini were brusque, unhelpful, wrong about train times (!!!) and unclear, vague and displayed zero desire to say more than three or four words to us....
