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

Again, yes, more climbing in Orvieto! After stepping out of the lift, there are 170 steps to the top. The last few steps are quite narrow similar to the Giotto Bell Tower in Florence. We were already tired but had an hour to kill before heading back to our favourite restaurant for lunch. It was a clear day, just a... More

Lovely views of the city. You can take an elevator up part way, and then walk the rest. While there were a good many steps, the stairs and stairway are modern and well-maintained. You will be out of breath, but the view is worth it

But worth every step when the panoramic view of the Umbrian countryside reveals itself when you arrive at the top, a bit winded but definitely wide-eyed.

I have been to Orvieto several times but going up the clock tower really put the town and coutryside into perspective for me. Lovely and inspiring views, lots of wind, and the clock chimes on the quarter hour, so just be ready. Note: lots of stairs to the top, but excellent construction of new wood, good lighting. No elevator to... More

Definitely worth the climb. Compared to many other attractions in this part of the world an easy and comfortable assent with pauses along the way to view the structure and look through the clock face. Complete 360 views await you to view the whole of Orvieto and the surrounding district. Great value for a few euros.

Very tasty fresh pasta! On a side street, small entrance but worth it. In summer, there isn't any AC, so come prepared if you'll be enjoying hot pasta and wine,
