In a country of amazing churches, cathedrals etc you can soon get burned out, BUT this one managed to get me going again. It is quite amazing . The cathedral is massive, and is black and white horizontally striped ( lava and limestone blocks) . The front facade is beautifully decorated with carvings and mosaics.

Beautiful duomo. Cost 3 euro to visit just the main sanctuary. Lovely respite from the sun. Amazing artwork and sense of generations.

This is one of the things you need to see when in Orvieto. It is not an elaborate Duomo as others in Italy but it is nice on the outside. There is a charge to see the inside. From what we saw of the inside from the door we did not feel it was worth it to pay.

It is a majestic church which is the major scenic attraction in Orvieto. The entrance price is small and though there were crowds, it was not crowded. Get the combo ticket so that you can see the associated buildings,

it is the place any cultural person must see. The frescos are wonderful and for me are og greater artistic value that that at Sistine Chapel.

I visited the Duomo di Orvieto in May 2015. It wasn't open when I was there however from the outside the Duomo is stunning. Also being in a plaza it's great to sit around and take in the view.

It is just an amazing example of Gothic extravagance. Glittering gold dazzles the eye from its ornate facade and it has very distinctive black and white marble strips running down its sides. It took over a hundred years to build. Inside are the amazing frescoes of Signorelli. The frescoes also refer to Dante's Divine Comedy and well it's just a... More

This Duomo is the most beautiful Duomo in the world. It isn't as fantastic as the outside of the Duomo in Florence nor as fantastic as the inside of St Peters in Rome but has it's own place for it's beauty. One of my 3 favorites.

I think wiki. says it better than I can, and it goes on to say - "The bas-reliefs are considered among the most famous of all the 14th century sculptures." Not bad for openers! Personally I loved the golden frontage and really disliked the outside 'Zebra Stripes'. Inside I really liked the frescoes, but again hated the Turin Foot-ball Team's... More
