Nice little town. We came by train from Rome - as you exit the station the fortified part of the city is right in front of you and looks medieval with the high walls. We took the funicular up to the town. The town it self i a classic little pearl with many little sneaky streets with beautiful old houses... More

The cathedral was a marvel. Didn't dislike anything. Do find the elevator up from the parking. We didn't and walked up. Not that that is bad....

If you're not into large metropolitan places, this is a great alternative. It has everything a tourist could want from ruins to cathedral to caves and more. Beautiful beyond imagination. And right on the train line. You take a funicular to the top of the hill on which the city is built, saving you the effort of making a very... More

This is a lovely town in Umbria and an 1 hr and 10 minute train ride from Rome. On arrival we stopped in the tobacco shop in the station to buy our Orvieto passes. The pass gets you up and down on the funicular and back and forth to the Duomo by minibus. Included is entrance to the Duomo and... More

This town is very beautiful and artsy! There are many shops of interest and a lot of restaurants. We're going back to see the museums. One day just was'nt enough in this beautiful place.

Stopped here as the town has the same name of one of our favourite white wines. Old, cute, well maintained for tourists with lots of sites, mainly religious as most historic Italian towns. Inundated by shops selling anything expensive, from clothes top designers to usual tat. Incredibly costly to live in, you can tell by the property prices displayed outside... More

In the middle of a week long trip to Rome, we thought we'd try a trip out to the countryside and almost picked Orvieto at random. So pleased we did. First of all getting there is extremely easy. Served by the local trains form Tiburtino station ( second largest in Rome) it's an hour and 20 minute ride. for this... More

If you want a slower pace in Tuscany, this is a good choice. The cathedral and Etruscan Museum (across from one another) are well worth the visit. Lots of quiet streets with numerous eateries and shops. A much slower pace after Florence.

It is really a beautiful city, a comune in Province of Terni, southwestern Umbria. I couldn't forget the lovely well, as it is one of the best journey i have visited so far. The caves are interesting too, so that you could understand what's happened in the past. I must say the cathedral is also very impressive. Walking around the... More
