Didn't expect to see a church of this size in the small town. Front of church was so detailed and colourful. The black and white stripes around the rest of the building were reminiscent of other duomos in Italy.

Duomo di Orvieto is its own. The building is amazing, grand and with such amazing decorations. We came to the Duomo fra the side and only saw the unique patterns made by the stones used. Then walking up a long the side and out into the square and turning around to see the front was stunning. The tall towers and... More

Best Duomo in Italy. I mean it. And most people don't even know about it. A chapel there rivals the Sistine Chapel.

The cathedral square is magnificent , beautiful façade and interior - worth a trip. Interesting walk up from car park. Plenty of good shops, sadly most shut from 2pm until 5pm , sales prevention madness !!

Beautiful monochrome bands inside and out. Sparsely furnished inside to express the grand form. Incredible translucent marble windows add to the gloomy light. Frescoes of naked hideous torture Catholics so love to judge others with, not for the eyes of children. Disturbing. 2wanderers.com

Just when you think you have already seen the most beautiful cathedral in Italy, along comes another one. This cathedral is one on those. It is situated in a smaller town and is out of the way, but the town and this cathedral is worth a detour. The exterior is phenomenal and so is the interior. A must see are... More

This duomo is a 'must-see'. One of the most beautiful duomos in Italy. Fewer tourists and more time to enjoy. Orvieto and Todi are beautiful and slightly 'off the beaten track'.
