Great Town

Lovely buildings, little streets, and alleys. Good shopping (better prices than most towns!). Plenty to do--both in town in in the area.

We spent three days in Orvieto and fell instantly in love with this beautiful city. The narrow, winding streets, shops, restaurants, churches and neighborhoods are simply magical. The city is very walkable—frankly you could not pay me enough to drive here—but do be careful for the locals zipping down the streets in their autos! We thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in... More

An awesome imaginary place where the funicular takes you up a hill to where smiles are ever present. Stayed at the Hotel Duomo (super cool hotel) run my a family dedicated to purity of mind and soul. Sure, there are historic sights to awe you but the real treasure is in its serenity and charm. Walking outside the walls to... More

It has everything you need for a good visit - historical places, natural beauty, good food and wine. The best of the Umbria :-)

I like everything about it. It is clean, safe, magical - with history oozing out of every stone. I couldn't take enough photos as every street I went down, or building I passed or arch I went under felt like something I needed to photograph because it was so beautiful. The shopkeepers and restaurant owners have all been very friendly... More

This is a picturesque small Italian town full of charm, friendly faces and history. This is everything I hoped it would be and more. One of my top five cities.

Beyond the gorgeous duomo and chapel of San Brizio by grossly under-appreciated Renaissance master Signorelli, the town sits on Etruscan ruins one can visit. There is a wonderful contemporary pottery shop just near the duomo. Ignore the attitude you might get in the train station cafe, where you can sometimes buy the tourist card (a great deal). Buy it before... More

Nice little town. We came by train from Rome - as you exit the station the fortified part of the city is right in front of you and looks medieval with the high walls. We took the funicular up to the town. The town it self i a classic little pearl with many little sneaky streets with beautiful old houses... More

The cathedral was a marvel. Didn't dislike anything. Do find the elevator up from the parking. We didn't and walked up. Not that that is bad....
