Orvieto is a must see and an easy trip from Rome. About 1 hour via train. Make time to walk the city and you can't get lost because it is on top of a hill. Very cool history and you get a real taste of Italy off the beaten path.

In the strikingly beautiful church in Orvieto called Il Duomo, you can see the blood-stained cloth preserved of the Miracle of Bolsena. Droplets of the blood of Christ dripped onto the altar cloth as the unbelieving priest said Mass. The cloth is preserved above the altar in a side chapel. Unfortunately it is now hidden behind doors in a controlled... More

In mid-December the city is sparsely populated making it easy to... More

There are many things to admire about this church: the carvings and mosaics on the exterior front; the layering of stone visible inside and out; the paintings inside; the interior space; windows made of thinly cut alabaster; the rose window; the way it sits in the square and is visible from many directions -- wonderful.

Orvieto's major landmark dominating the medieval city. Gothic cathedral with marvelous pink marble and golden mosaic. Inside to visit as well. Enjoy!

Three-gabled frontage glimmering with gold that changes as the sun passes. Beautiful mosaics and a huge rose window. The inside is filled with art work too. It truly is a feast not to be missed.

There are truly amazing churches in Italy (and tens of thousands of indifferent ones). This is on the amazing list. Right up there with Florence and Sienna.
