This cathedral has the most colorful and possibly most beautiful facade in all of Europe. Don't miss it. It's a real gem!

The duomo is one of the most magnificent churches in Italy. Stark, powerful...nothing like the excess and melodrama of its Roman counterparts. The city itself is clean, compact, manageable, clean. And the funicular up to the city from the train station is just plain fun.

Orvieto is a small town a little off the beaten path BUT one of the best hidden gems of the greater Tuscany-Umbria region of Italy. The Duomo is impressive for both what is inside and out - love the awesome art work of the facade! I have been here many times and try to visit Orvieto every May or June... More

Loved this place. I would go back & spend more time here. Streets are narrow, no cars allowed past the main piazza. Stroll in and out of the stores, had an espresso and THE BEST porchetta sandwich ever!

Despite being a small town, Orvieto's Duomo is just an amazing massive piece of an artistic gem. The outside of this church alone is enough to dazzle you for at least half an hour or maybe more. Inside it is beautiful too.

A respectful cathedral up in the hill; beautiful structure in town. Lots of cafes surrounding it which makes it splendid to just take a seat outside and enjoy the view of its exterior

This is a truly beautiful cathedral, a magnificent building reminiscent of Moorish architecture. It is worth visiting the inside too, for a very small fee. If you are in town for the night, walk back to the cathedral square to see it at night...a wonderful experience by moonlight! There are little cafes and shops around the square...sit outside during the... More

Paid 3 euros entrance fee, but to be honest the Duomo's feature is the beautiful painted exterior. The inside is very bare and in my opinion not worth paying to visit it.

We arrived in Orvieto after dark so the interior was closed, unfortunately. However, it was the night prior to the full moon so the exterior was brilliantly lit. It was an incredible view with the nearly full moon in the cool January sky lighting the Duomo. Truly breathtaking. Can't wait to go back and view the inside.

After driving to this tiny little town from Rome, we were pleasantly surprised with the Duomo di Orvieto. The view from below is magnificent, very enchanting. Helpful tip if you have a car, you can park your car down below and take a free shuttle bus up to the town. There is limited parking by the Duomo and the streets... More
