We kind of stumbled upon this historical hilltop in Italy not really knowing what to expect and were incredibly surprised by the beautiful inspiring cathedral built so many years ago. Wow! If you are in the area it is definitely worth visiting. We also very much enjoyed walking along the narrow streets of the town around the cathedral. It is... More

I keep saying that, but Orvieto was beautiful. The pieta that inspired Michelangelo's is in there. We could have spent more time here easily.

The Cathedral is striking from the outside and very beautiful inside. I paid the €5 admission for the Cathedral, chapel, and museum but really wished I had done a guided tour because of the amazing artwork and story behind it. As an example the detailed sculptures across the lower front of the church tell the story of Genesis, the Tree... More

Well, the cathedral is beautiful, no doubts. If it was the only reason to visit Orvieto, it's well worth it. It's got a very interesting history and it inspired a lot of artists, including Michelangelo. It's great to sit in Piazza in one of the local cafes, sip your drink and just admire it. It went through partial renovation while... More

You are walking in the city and all of a sudden there is the Duomo. It is really something to look at and you could spend hours just looking at each little thing. I also got a chance to go to the mass and as a lutheran it was interesting but it was a great experience.

This beautiful cathedral is second to none. The façade is amazingly decorated with beautiful mosaics and statues which contribute to give the cathedral its unique style. The Chapel of San Brizio is decorated with precious frescos of the Apocalypse by Beato Angelico and Luca Signorelli. On the left wall you can glimpse a self-portrait of Luca Signorelli and Signorelli’s portrait... More

This is a most perfect day trip from Rome. The Duomo is stunning! Here is a little history: 15 November 1290, Pope Nicholas IV laid the cornerstone for the present building and dedicated it to the Assumption of the Virgin, a feast for which the city had a long history of special devotion. The design has often been attributed to... More
