Orvieta's magnificent Duomo (cathedral) is considered one of the must-see churches in Italy for its stunning gold-and-mosaic Gothic façade and magnificent frescoes by Luca Signorelli, which had a great influence on Michelangelo's work in the Sistine Chapel.

You don't go to Orvieto expecting the Vatican. This is a very special place for a very specific reason. The relics held inside are full of meaning for those who appreciate it's miracle. The architecture is gorgeous outside.

Had a great day in this walled city. Walked about a mile up a gradual slope from the funicular and enjoyed all the medieval architecture. Turned the corner to the main square and WOW! On a bright sunny day, the façade of the Cathedral was magnificent. Get a guide; the story of this church and its contents is spell-binding. It... More

This is a stunning town on top of a rather large hill with a beautiful cathedral. A quick funicular ride takes visitors to the top, and after a short uphill walk, visitors arrive in the central square. Check out the cathedral, which looks similar inside and out to its sister churches in Florence. Then meander through the small town and... More

The heart of Orvieto, just an incredible view, each exterior panel of the church tells a story, conveys a message to all people. The interior of the church takes your breath away, a very spiritual place to be. I would strongly recommend taking a guided tour of Orvieto medieval village to learn about the history in more detail, this was... More

Duomo di Orvieto is magnificent. Definitely is worth a visit. We did it without a tour. Bought the ticket inside the cathedral. They gave us a brochure but it is not enough as it only contains the name of the pieces of art and the artists. We used one of the machines inside that describes a part of the cathedral,... More

This cathedral is absolutely stunning! We were there as they were preparing for the Easter concert, and everyone was very friendly and helpful. It's absolutely gorgeous and worth your time.

The title sounds redundant if you have visited the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria but it truly was magnificent. The beauty of the artwork both inside and on the front facade of the Duomo are difficult to put into words. Simply magnificent all the way around. Best of all we were able to attend Easter Mass and witness a... More

Walking up the Via del Duomo takes you into the square in front of the church, a breath-taking sight. Amazing that this structure is in such a small place. Marvel at the gold and the spires, but then go inside for more treats, especially the alcove (see photo). Worth the trip to this quaint town

I have seen many Duomo but this one has the most impressive outside. The facade is very ornate and colorful marble. It is best to view it in the late afternoon when the sun hits the front and the gold sparkles. The inside is just as impressive with its alcoves and high ceilings.

In researching our trip to Italy, it became apparent that at least one hilltop town must be included in our itinerary. We found a beautiful little apartment in Orvieto on VRBO and stayed there for two nights. Orvieto really gives you the feel of a medieval village. It is also nearby the hard to find, but well worth it, hilltop... More
