Amazining Duomo

One of my favorite duomos in Italy. Truly spectactular. Don't miss it. Make sure shoulders and legs are covered but worth it. Beautiful artifacts and a stained glass.

This is a small, very quaint, artsy town. There was plenty to keep us busy for the 9 hours we were there. It was well worth the 1 hour train ride from Rome. We went down into St. Patricks well (were we were eaten alive by mosquitos, but it was worth it). We took the Underground Orvieto tour of the... More

We love Orvieto as it sits high above the valley floor!!! It originally was an Etruscan city as the town/surrounding countryside are dotted with Etruscan ruins. It is known for its breathtaking Duomo/Cathedral, their Classico wines, and beautiful ceramics. It is a very walkable town with many nice restaurants and wonderful alleyways.

Had a great lunch there and bought some local wine which was very cheap. If you are driving and happen to be passing Orvieto then you should stop by for a few hours!

Good parking and smooth escalators up tot he town. The Duomo facade was under some scaffolding which was a pity but still couldn't spoil the experience. The views from the Torre del... More

We stopped in this charming town on our drive between Rome and Florence. We spent the morning browsing the quaint artisan shops and touring the man made caverns under the town followed by lunch in one of the many bistros. It was both a lovely and educational experience.

Be sure to take the little shuttle bus up the hill to the square of the Duomo. One of our very favourite Umbrian cities. Quality architecture, interesting shops and plenty to see and eat. A perfect afternoon.
