Orvieto is a wonderful site to visit, with some recent archaeological digs, a unique and breathtaking Duomo, and some authentic shopping. One aspect I loved about this town is that it is not as "touristy" as some other places, and so gives visitors a more authentic view of Umbrian life.

Orvieto is, in our opinion, the crown jewel of central Italy. It is located minutes away from a main train line, 70 minutes from Roma and under two hours from Firenza. If driving, many of central Italy's renowned hill towns, including Assisi, Civita, Todi, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza and Pitigliano, are under 100 km distant. Perched atop a tufo formation 1,000... More

the old town is beautiful, the Duomo is incredible and we were there for the Penacost festival which was fascinating. Ir is also a great place to shop for ceramics.

Orvieto can be reached either by car or, even better, via the funicular that takes you up to the top of the town, situated on a tufa hill. Amazing 360 degree views. And the people are among the most friendly in Italy… local custom, you'll notice, is to leave water bottles out for thirsty travelers. The caves, the Duomo, the... More

We liked Orvieto but our time was limited to a four hour trip,The Dummo is a must and is exceptional in architectural terms.We were sorry we did not have time to visit the well and we certainly will return for a longer stay.The views over the surrounding country side are fantastic given Orvieto's elevated position.Plenty of shops, cafes and historic...

Has some nice monuments and it is interesting to walk around the town. Some interesting restaurants and it is on a cliff with very interesting views below. We stayed one night to break our journey and as a stop over to go to Sorrento from Milan

We had been here for just a few hours on a tour of Florence when we were staying in Rome, and we vowed to come back and stay a night and see the Duomo. We did that and more! Beautiful streets with quant little shops; good restaurants, etc. A must see!

This very authentic Umbrian Village is a lovely place for a day trip from Rome or Florence. It's an hour train ride from Rome. The views from the village are spectacular as is the colorful cathedral in the center of town. There are lots of cute shops, gelaterias and some great restaurants. Note the town does observe siesta so you... More

The roads are narrow, there are many churches. Several roads and the piazza duomo are in a large zone without car traffic
