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.

I asked myself if I could make the climb, as my 9 year old granddaughter bounded ahead. But make it I did and wow! The view was worth every step. In each direction there was a new vista, taking in Orvieto and the surrounding landscape. Don't forget the camera. This is a photography dream.

Only 3 euro.... wasn't too busy when we got there. Take the elevator, then an easy climb for the rest of the way. Spectacular views, but watch the bell ringing every 15 minutes - quite loud as you are right next to it!

This is a great experience to see the hillsides surrounding Orvieto. There is a lift and then 230 steps to climb, but it is well worth it. If you purchase the Carta Unica at the train station, then this is one of the attractions which is included in the cost. The views from the top of the clock tower are... More

Very close to the Duomo, we decided to climb up the stairs because not much else was open in Orvieto over lunchtime. For a fee of 3 Euro you can climb up to the top of the clock tower for memorable views. At 45 metres high, the tower was built in the late 13th century to monitor the surrounding territory.... More

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
