By far, this was my favorite place to visit - had to take a cable car up to the town- which was fun! The town is small but so friendly and they have the best wine ever! The croissants are to die for! The church seriously looks like out of a storybook - beautiful with a view that is awesome.... More

Approaching by car from the southeast, the town of Orvieto shines like a jewel on a rocky crag. The drive up the steep narrow Strada Fontana del Leone to Via Postieria lead to a convenient parking lot at Piazza Marconi which is in turn just a five minute walk to the Duomo and it's square. On a corner of the... More

The ten of us spent several hours marching about the old city of Orvieto marveling its buildings, streets, churches, views, and history. We went from the train station parking lot to the funicular and up to the city. The area was larger than we had imagined and included nice shops, restaurants, and alley-ways.

I would highly recommend a day trip to Orvieto when in Rome! Only an hour by train from Rome, you ascend to the cliff town for wonderful food, shopping, and sightseeing! Highly recommend Underground Orvieto, Duomo, and Trattoria La Grotta!

Medieval city, long hike up cobbled streets to main town (Elevator service also available) Some areas go back to 15- and 1600 AD. Underneath are ancient caves, from Etruscan times. The church (Duomo) is spectacular, stands out among the many churches of Italy. Much of the walls and ceilings are covered by frescoes of ancient masters. There is a Pieta... More

We loved this town, but only had one day. We will definitely plan on returning and spending several days:)

On our recent Mediterranean cruise we decided to take a tour to Orvieto instead of Rome. Orvieto provided a quieter more relaxed day. The village has several nice shops and a beautiful Duomo. As you walk the narrow streets, you see lovely flowers outside the windows. We also had a good Italian lunch. We truly enjoyed the day.
