Orvieto is beautiful! We visited five cities in Italy over a two week period and Orvieto was one of our favorites. You wouldn't want to spend a week there, but two days would be perfect. We wandered around for hours, admiring all the curvy back streets in this medieval town. There are lots of small shops carrying ceramics, leather good... More

We did a day trip with private tour company up to Orvieto. This is a beautiful and scenic town with more history than one day visit affords. We could have easily stayed several days. There were wonderful shops and cafes, Italian pottery, wine tasting and charming narrow roads and walkways for exploring. Well worth a visit.

the town is beautifully located on a high hill, very close to the highway to Rome, there are many tunnels in the town, and they connect the centre with the parking

Detrain at Orvieto,cross over the square and take the funicular up to the cathedral. The exterior is just exquisite and unmistakably Tuscan with the black and white ashlar marble string courses and guilded decor. Try as I might I couldn't get it all in one shot! There are two underground experiences. The 1st is a system of tunnels carved into... More

Always wanted to visit and, if possible, stay in one of the iconic walled/hilltop towns. The surprise (in addition to the tourist sights) was that this is a living breathing town where people actually live. Just the best food and atmosphere (and, so close to Rome).

We stayed overnight here in Orvieto (in Ripa Medici, see my other review) and the weather wasn't at it's best, but it is still a lovely pretty old town. Plenty of churches to see, the Duomo in particular is stunning. A great place to spend a day or two. We didn't see any of the new town at the bottom... More

A beautiful medieval hilltop town, perfect for spending a few quiet days in an idyllic setting and soaking up the atmosphere of Umbria. Plenty of things to see and do, all by foot. Highly recommended.

This a quiet little hill town just a short train ride from Rome. The streets were quiet with none of the traffic or crowds you see in Rome. A nice change. Don't miss the place for a true feel of Italy.
