We got out of hot Rome for a day trip to a hill top town. We have wanted to do this after seeing so many interesting hill top towns while on train rides between Florence and Rome. Orvieto was a very cool place. The Duomo façade is amazing, the inside of the church has many unique features and frescoes dating... More

Hilltop town with lots of history, architecture and scenery. Clean and uncrowded, even during high tourist season. Great for hikers/walkers/amblers. Not too shabby for shoppers and eaters. Afternoon siesta is the norm, so most shops close daily from around 1pm to 4-5pm. Eateries an exception. Completely worth visiting for folks that have seen Rome and want something different.

This is a typical Italian town that is beautiful with buildings, restaurants, shops and markets. This is in the area where Tartufo truffles are featured and you can get some great dishes with Tartufo in it. Also wild Boar is popular here and very delicious.

Very nice, quaint old city... nice to walk around and sightseing. The Duomo is amazing. If you are not staying within the old city, the mechanical stairs are a good way to reach out the top. Otherwise, climbing or walking up may be very tiresome.

We enjoyed the historic ambiance. The town has maintained its history. Prices were very reasonable. The views from on high were lovely. It is easy to walk around.

medieval and renaissance heaven!! just arriving on the funicular sets the stage for this 'dreamy' hill town: cathedral, medieval stone shops, narrow winding streets leading to narrow winding alleys... you can try to get lost, but such an accessibly walking town not quite possible! enjoy a few hours or maybe a couple of relaxing days, but don't miss it!!!

The best word I can use to describe Orvieto, is magical. We spent only two nights there, and regretted not having more time. Although small, Orvieto packs a big punch when it comes to sights to see. The Cathedral is a must, with its fabulous facade, and interesting history. The cave tour was extremely interesting, and I found myself feeling... More

We stopped by Orvieto on our way to Civita and wish we had just stayed. Orvieto is a great mix of Umbrian hill town and commercial enough to also have great eating, drinking an people watching. Civita is magical to see from afar, the way it perilously sits atop a hill, but it was not worth the long (and extremely... More

Orvieto is an inviting hilltop town between Rome and Florence and very much worth a stop. The town is dominated by its beautiful Doumo. There are many side streets with shops and restaurants. We took the time just to walk around and enjoy the sights. There are some dramatic overlooks. Very entertaining.
