“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The Cathedral/Church was built over the remains of an ancient Roman temple. The Duomo is at the top of Cortona, a steep way to go, but worth it. You can see nice remains of original frescoes, stained glass and nice door carvings, From the little piazza you can overlook the panorama of the beautiful Tuscany

“Not the grandest, but still a delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Interesting remains of original frescoes. It is very quiet and charming, with its own peaceful little piazza, which overlooks a vast panorama of the Tuscan landscape.

“Another Duomo?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

There are so many Duomos and Cathedrals in Europe, it has to be exceptionally great to be impressed. On this trip I was impressed with the Duomo in Orvieto.
