Orvieto is a beautiful hilltop city in Umbria. And it isn't overrun with tourists. The Unica Card can be purchased at the train station when you arrive, and for €18 you can see all the major sites (including the funicular up and down the mountain and tours at several locations) in this beautifully charming city. It is easy to get... More

This was my second time to Orvieto and I loved it just as much as the first time. I would recommend visiting for the day, or even half the day! Underground tours were neat. Shopping is awesome. I got a lot of souvenirs for my friends and family there. If you travel down the shopping street, you'll run into the... More

Well worth a visit. Stop before going up the hill on foot and take some panoramic pictures in the garden/park which is to the left as you exit the funicular. Then hike up the hill to a gem of a place. Plenty of sights, shops, eateries. Take your time and wander the narrow streets. Watch out if you need the... More

This small medieval hilltop town is a 'must-see' stop on the road between Rome and Florence. The Duomo is spectacular, as are the underground caves. Narrow streets; wonderful restaurants; a superb Jazz Festival between Christmas and New Years. If you are planning a visit to Italy be sure to include Orvieto on your itinerary - you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I got married in Orvieto, Italy on June 6th 2014. We have found these forums to be very helpful when deciding whether or not to have our wedding abroad and when preparing for our wedding in Italy. We want to share some of our thoughts on why we chose to have our wedding in Orvieto, Italy, and... More

Orvieto - a gem, not hidden as it sits on its promontory overlooking the valley, watching the mists creep in and the sun tint its ancient walls. Wander the tiny alleys, watch the light break into the streets and spotlight brilliant geranium and flower baskets. Very friendly people, do bargain for the lovely pottery, as they will all tell you... More

I always wanted to visit Orvieto and on this years summer break, we parked the motorhome in the camperstop and took the funicular up into the town. We were impressed, the cathedral is beautiful, well worth a visit. The town is situated just off the E45 and parking was easy and cheap, as was the funicular. There was a charge... More

We visited Orvieto on the way to Assisi from Rome. We were very surprised by the beauty of the cathedral and by the quiet beauty of the town itself. I actually enjoyed the time here far more than Assisi, which seemed over comercialized (c'mon - Simpsons t-shirts for sale in a Catholic shrine?). Over the course of 10 days in... More

You have got to visit.....its a lovely old city with a lot of old world charm. From the outside of the city, you can see the vineyards surrounding the hill that the old city sits upon. In the old city there are some nice shops and restaurants...it all makes for a nice lazy afternoon just wandering around the old town.

Orvieto is a quaint little town set high in the mountains of Province of Terni, Italy with access by funicular car. I love the cobble stone alleyways that are very very narrow. Its like going back in the 18th century. The stores have really intersting souvenirs and you can find just about anything you want. The restaurants are tiny and... More
