Orvieto is perfect for a day or more time.The Duomo! the best gelateria in the region (next to the Duomo), excellent restaurants of all prices and atmosphere, lovely to walk around. Easy to see why it is a popular destination for Romans on a day trip for lunch!

A great stop over driving north from Rome to Tuscany. Ovvieto is full of great shopping, including ceramics that are shipped all over the world because of their colour and quality. This town has a great buzz about it, the food is brilliant and the shopping is excellent.

We parked in a public garage (1 euro/hr) near Campo della Fiera where we picked up a very good free city map in English and then rode about 4 sets of escalators up to the city center. We found our way to the main street, Corso Cavour lined with shops and then turned up Via del Duomo to get tickets... More

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.

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
