Love the city of Orvieto and took more time to explore this trip and found more to love. Great town and sidewalk restaurants are all over and all looked good.

The city center of Orvieto is interesting, welcoming and well worth a visit. It is easily walked around, and there are good museums, restaurants and activities

Whether you enjoy architecture, history, wine & food or just strolling around the little streets looking at shops and people. Orvieto has it all and lot's of it. Loved our day in the city and will certainly come again...and again....

Pick a piazza, pick a cafe, pick a restaurant.....this place is great for shopping, people watching, eating, drinking, relaxing. Not too crowded and very friendly....I'd come back and spend some time!

This was by far my most favorite city that we visited in Italy. It was everything I imagined that a quaint town in the hills of Italy would be. From the moment we went up the hill to the finicular, I knew it was going to be special. I loved the narrow, cobblestone streets filled with beautiful ceramic shops. I... More

On our way up from Rome to Florence we stopped at a village high in a valley known as Orvieto. Easy to find Tourist Information across from cathedral.

Absolutely loved this town... we only stopped as a half way on a longer journey and so glad we did. Loved everything, the architecture and history is stunning, on a par with Montepluciano, Cortona, Siena etc. and its not overrun with tourists. The food/cafes were top notch. We will be back for a longer stopover without question.

I loved my week's stay in Orvieto. There is a lot to see and do in town and everything can be reached within an easy walk. Very good restaurants and cafes. It is a great location to venture out into Umbria and Tuscany from.

I have travelled throughout Italy for many years, but Orvieto has taken my heart. A hilltop city, small but perfectly formed. From the impressive Duomo to the wonderful ice cream shop, the theatre to the impressive leather shops. Just visit and enjoy, you just can't help yourself

I cannot wait to return to Orvieto. This was a small hill town, rich in history with lots to see and wonderful people. I will definitely return and use Orvieto as my base for exploring other towns in Italy…but Orvieto felt like "home".
