The clock tower Torre del Morro is in the middle of the city at the intersection of Via del Duomo, Via Della Consttuente and Corso Cavour. The climb to the top is less taxing than Siena's tower and affords 360' views of the Umbrian countryside and the intriqing streets of Orvieto.

The guy who EVENTUALLY opened up to let us see the tower looked like he'd been 'out on the tiles' and he was LATE in doing so! As there are several entrances to this sight, the fact that all of them were locked till 1/4hr after opening time did not fill one with confidence, and led to considerable exploration in... More

It's a long hot climb to the top but do this day 1 to get a good lay of the land to see the excellent views. We loved it!

take the elevator to the 2nd floor and climb the remaining 170 steps to treat yourselves to a magnificent view of Orvieto and its surroundings

It's quite a long way up, but it's worth every step. Once upstairs one will have a spectacular view on Orvieto and it's surroundings!

We tend to climb every tower in the towns we visit so we had to climb this one. It's easiest enough to climb and narrow to navigate but definitely safe.

A mammoth climb of 250 stairs took us to the top of the Torre del Moro, you can take an elevator some of the way up, but where is the challenge in that. It was a long, hard climb but we eventually made it and the view was definitely worth it.

This is a great place to see the whole town of Orvieto and the neighboring countryside. Just realize that you'll have to climb something like 170 steps but definitely worth it.

This tower is a good orientation tool at the center of town. For less than 3 euros you can take an elevator part way and then climb the remaining 173 steps. The steps are wide, even, wood so they are doable by most. At the top are great views of town and the surrounding area and hills. The visit here... More

Excellent service. Easy to make a reservation over the phone for the same evening we arrived. Many locals came in for dinner, although the first or early seating seemed to be mainly tourists. The menu is comprehensive with lots to choose from. Like many local restaurants, the lights are kept up pretty high compared to US "standards" so there isn't... More
