If you got off the AutoStrada to visit Orvieto then the Duomo is the reason. A very good reason. As I always suggest hire a tour guide to bring alive the thus stunning locale. The San Brizo chapel is a marvelous example of frescoes...so well...More

We were there the third week of September 2018. When we arrived around 3:00pm, the Duomo facade was breathtaking. The light was perfect. We literally sat against the wall adjacent to the church for at least an hour looking at all the different statues, pictures and stories. We stayed in Orvieto for six days and every afternoon, we would go to the Piazza, have a glass of wine and view the facade. Absolutely wonderful and we are now planning to return in May.
