Currently the central section of the main facade is under scaffolding which was something of a disappointment but nevertheless it's definitely worth a visit . Go early, it opens... read more

Currently the central section of the main facade is under scaffolding which was something of a disappointment but nevertheless it's definitely worth a visit . Go early, it opens at 9.30 and was pretty empty and so we could really see the frescos which are stunning. Although it says no cameras, it means no flash. I liked the fact that... More

This is an exceptional cathedral, with an interesting mix of architectural styles from various ages forming its facade, rather like the mixing of prints in couturier design. I was fortunate enough to sing in a Saturday evening mass in this church, and the acoustics are wonderful.

14th Century Cathedral with beautiful artwork and design. Takes your breath away. Tried to join a guided tour and was told to go to a near by building to get tickets and then was told, politely, to get them from the cathedral?

I stayed in Orvieto only one day and visited the Duomo and few other attractions. I visited most of Umbria and Tuscany and this is definitively one of the most beautiful church I have seen in my life. Must-see!

Architecture of the finest quailty, an awe inspiring sacred space of amazing proportions and graceful beauty. Two ravishing chapels with frescos of the finest quality. Be sure to look at the organ case. The red marble floor was gorgeous.

Amazing duomo Unfortunately the front wa sunder construction but it did not take away from the splendour of the church. Get the combined ticket that gives access to the museum and crypt.

If you are in Orvieto and wish to attend mass, there is a side chapel which holds a daily mass. If you wish to attend Sunday mass it is held in the primary alter of the church. If you wish to see the church without a service, there is an entrance fee (I believe it was 6 euros to tour... More

This Duomo is absolutely breathtaking and spectacular!!!! We are fortunate enough to be returning to Italy and especially to Orvieto two years in a row. We made sure to stay more than one day this year to be able to take in the Duomo more leisurely. It has stayed in our hearts and we have told many people of this... More

We love the Duomo but were sad to see it was under renovation on the outside. Not the best for pictures with the scaffolding covering the center of it. The inside is still amazing and worth the visit!
