I've seen many cathedrals on my tour and what stands out about this one is the stunning façade. I suppose one could say it's just another magnificent medieval cathedral, but if you're in Orvieto it's a must.

One of the most spectacular frontages of any Cathedral I have ever seen. Interior is a disapointment.

The crown jewel of Orvieto, this church is astoundingly beautiful. For only 3 euro to enter, please do not miss the history of the Duomo...

Don't miss this amazing cathedral. In 2 1/2 weeks of traveling and seeing many Duomo's this is by far the greatest we have seen. Breathtaking and most memorable!!

We greatly enjoyed our late evening visit, when we took our time to visit the superb chapel. The main façade is fantastic with a combination of various styles and elements-superb in the sunset light!
