The tower is a quick stop and should be done when visiting Oriveto. Elevator takes you halfway up. Great views from the top.

Definitely take the time to climb the clock tower! Only about 200 stairs (less if you take the elevator half way up), it's not a very difficult climb compared to other bell/clock towers in Italy. Worth it for the beautiful views of Orvieto! Just be warned, the bell might sound while you are up there- it scared us.

You have to climb many stairs, but the overlook of the town and the countryside are worth it (and is a extra fitness training). There is a mechanical clock inside (1876) and two bells can ring, one of them rang when i just entered the top - a laud "bang-bang" gave me a welcome

The climb to the top can be shortened by about 100 steps if you take the elevator the second floor. In either case, the climb is worth the effort. the views from the top are spectacular. This view of the city lets you appreciate its layout and the narrow streets and older buildings, and the large number of churches. The... More

Arrived without booking on a Sunday evening and the place was full but a table was still found in a corner! Very good local cuisine accompanied by the house wine which was very good and spectacular value for money at only €8 per bottle!

I have Made a return visit to Orvieto after 2 years and this restaurant remains as I remember it...understated and relaxed, good food and kind service from Christian and staff. Worth a visit for honest good food and service.

It's 240 steps to the top, and those risking their hearts will be rewarded with great views in all directions, including the duomo and the hills beyond. The bells chime every 15 minutes, which can take you by surprise given that the clock was 5 minutes behind when we visited. The wooden stairwell itself is modern and you'll spot the... More

An excellent start to our visit to Orvieto. The tower gives a view of the whole town and the surrounding countryside. It allows one to build up an image of the whole town and how the various areas relate to one another. We cheated and used the lift but the subsequent stairs to the top were a reasonable climb.

OK, so how many 13th century towers give you THIS sort of view. Answer: not many. Best view of Orvieto, and clearly at "mountaintop" experience. Can't leave Orvieto without visiting, climbing up (a schlepp, but worth it) at least once.
