A stay or side trip to Orvieto will reward you with charm, incredible views and the magnificent duomo that almost seems out of place in this small hilltop town in Umbria. The colorful Gothic facade is especially striking. The interior houses some fine art including frescoes, beautifully painted ceilings, stained glass, etc. Well worth a visit as is the town... More

The duomo' s beautiful facade us pretty spectacular, but the frescos of the Last Judgment are the highlight of the visit. Make sure you go inside and visit the both chapels, left and right.

Orvieto is a pretty hill town. We parked our car in the parking lot behind the train station, not quite that easy to find, and then got on the funicular for the trip o the top of the hill and the start of the walk into town. This cathedral is different than many in that it has a dazzling façade... More

Great construction. The chapels had very nice art work. The multi colored stones layers were a nice contrast. It draws your eyes to the Duomo immediately after your enter the piazza.

Be sure to bring a guide for a description of all the sights on the outside of the cathedral and inside. It is truly a masterpiece, and it is good to have an understanding of what you are seeing. We were a bit surprised that there was a charge to enter, but it is a small amount, and it is... More

Did not visit the Duomo last year as we went on an Etruscan tour and so we did the Duomo first as we had booked in at our favourite restaurant Tratorria del Moro ( 5 Michelin Stars) at 12.30 pm. As it was early it was not crowded. Was built late 1300s to early 1400s. Fantastic architecture. The paintings are... More

The façade of the Duomo is simply breathtaking and touching. We attended the Sunday service, that was also nice.

立派な外観で有名ですが、内部も落ち着きがあり、なかなかの物です。又付属博物館も中のものですよ。 夕陽に映える建物を愛で、翌朝ゆっくりと内部をみて、博物館で歴史の変遷を楽しむのも、旅の楽しみです!! This Duomo is very well known for the bueatiful outside, but for me enjoyed the inside and musiam. Because there are calm and you can get the historical changes!!

A huge duomo dominating the central part of the historic Orvieto. The nave is a huge Space With large columns. Choir and two trancepts with beautiful, painted decoration. The main facade has some impressive basreliefs and amasing decorations of colourful mosaics. The duomo museum (same ticket) is worth seeing also.
