Impressive Duomo , please take a few minutes to at least view the exterior. It is located in beautiful part of Orvieto. Off to the far right of the Duomo is a beautiful overlook area.

Wonderful Duomo in the middle of a vibrant square with beautiful mosaics and striking gold features, including statuettes and winged bronze animals. Didn't have time to go inside but the outside is a delight to view. Next time I will stay longer in Orvieto!

To be honest, I wasn't expecting this duomo to be as amazing as it was, as my husband and I were nearly all "churched out" from sightseeing in various towns and cities on our honeymoon. Boy, was I wrong. The façade of the building is a piece of art in itself, with amazingly intricate inlays of stone and metalwork, as... More

We unfortunately were too late to see the inside of the church before it closed. We visited later in the day and chose to go to St. Patrick's well first. We should have done the opposite, since the well stayed open longer than the church. But is is very impressive on the outside.

Set on the highest point in Orvieto with its bold white and blue-grey striped facade, heavily decorated with detailed spires and carvings, this duomo demands to be seen. Built over 100's of years, the art and architecture is a coming together of many styles and influences which I found to be sensory overload. One needs to take time here to... More

Be sure to step into the chapel at the right of the altar and see beautiful artwork. See the sculpture on the left of the altar, a Pieta with four figures carved from one piece of marble.

We attended Mass here and walked through the duomo. There is much history here and this is where the feast of Corpus Christi began. It was a very moving experience to tour the Duomo, but especially to participate in the liturgy.
