Orvieto is a small town but full of life; the two main attractions are the Torre del Moro (Tower of the Muslim) and the Cathedral (which is also a Basilica according to a plaque inside)... Once you pay your ticket at the entrance of the tower, you can take an elevator that will take you 2 floors up, but then... More

The climb is not too bad - many steps and very skinny in parts as you should expect going up a... More

This tower is the best place to know Orvieto from the top, making photos etc. You must take the lift and then, at the second stage, be prepared for about 70 steps! Be aware of some special times, (like 12 o'clock..) due to the big bell that sounds very close to your ears!

The steps were pretty daunting, but the view was awesome! The steps are modern and not terrible to climb, there's just a lot of them. We we're the only people at the attraction when we went. You could see the whole town and beyond and you can really see just how huge the Duomo is!

In the very middle of the town, relatively easy to climb (good wooden stairs, but a lift will help you up to the 2nd floor, then you are on your own). Great views on the town roofs and surrounding countryside, and great photo opportunities in a sunny day. Don't get scared by the bell stroke (it only occurs every half... More

Definitely worth the climb! The stairs are wooden, level, and easy to traverse. And even if you decide to take the lift, it's still worth the trip, as the views from the top are beautiful! Relax, enjoy the vista, and take some great photos. ps -- I went around 5pm and after a little while, had the whole roof to... More

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