This is a gem of Italiana -- if you are an ugly tourist PLEASE don't sully these winding streets and superb italian medieval architecture. Orvieto is a place for simple pleasures, under the shade of noble cliffs, and wise parapets...

Had never been here before choosing the town as a stop over on the drive from Naples to Florence - absolutely beautiful and the Duomo is in all honest one of the most amazing buildings in Italy. Try and find the oldest church in the town, San Giovenale, no-one around and stunning frecos.

We have booked a day tour to Pienza, Montepulciano, Orvieto. The places are full of surprises. The food, the vine yard, the small villages of Italy, the shops, most important of all, the people, are all wonderful. Our guide is very knowledgeable in every aspect of the area and all the arrangements are up to our expectation and our needs.

We hired a driver from Florence to Rome and stopped in Siena and then Orvieto. So glad we did this! Unlike Siena, Orvieto is an ancient, quaint, quiet town on a steep hilltop with a beautiful grey marble church. We had lunch at Cantina Foresi and walked through the town to find views of the countryside from its fortress walls.... More

It's a tourist trap. But a very good one. The one you simply must visit. It has both crowded streets and empty old alleys, full of green plants and very clean.

I have been to Italy many times and seen this city on the hill as I zipped by on the A-1. This is the first time I have stopped for a visit. What a wonderful city. You park outside the city and take a number of escalators and elevators up to the city. You step out into a Renaissance city... More

What an adventure to take the funicular up to the magical little gem of a town with the most spectacular Duomo. So much to see! A must visit.

Small city on top of the hill. Visitors must take a tram up from the railway station. It's not as crowded as other cities, wonderful shops, many fine restaurants. It is fun to walk around the city walls in the evening and look out on the countryside, watch the high speed trains go by (none of them stop in Orvieto)

The location feels like you have stepped back in time even though they have most modern conveniences. We stayed for several days.
