Gold leaf front, amazing artwork - I suggest a tour to fully appreciate the art and significance. Part of the Oriveto Unica ticket - well worth it. Ladies arms and knees should be covered - although they are a bit flexible on the latter.

This definitely worth a stop. Some of the stained glass windows seem to be in disrepair but there are some really magnificent features here as well.

If for nothing else, come to the city to see the façade of this magnificent Duomo. The mosaics alone are magnificent. The interior, although not as ornate as the façade, is beautiful and it's simplicity.

This is the jewell in Orvieto's crown. Following the narrow and winding streets you suddenly come up to a large open piazza with this magnificent building emerging into view. A must-see for anyone visiting Orvieto. The design and artwork inside are overwhelmingly beautiful.

The Church in Orvieto is fantastic. Surely it is the main attraction in Orvieto, also a very nice town. When you arrive in front of the Duomo of Orvieto, you will be met by a very nice facade, all covered with mosaic, forming pictures with stories from the Holy Bible. And when about the interior. Words cannot tell. Frescoes from... More

From the beautiful exterior doors to the mosaics adorning the outer walls, not to mention the "stripes" of the building materials, this is a grand old building even before stepping inside---and stepping back in history.

I thought it is far superior to the Domo in Florence. The entire front of the exterior is done in mosaic that is just breathtaking. The interior is also amazing, I'm not a big church guy but this one is really something to experience.

This church in Orvieto is absolutely stunning. The intricate architecture and paintings, and the size of the church truly is amazing. Lovely to sit at the coffee shop nearby to admire the church's exterior as well.

A stunning piece of architecture. Obviously one of the main attractions in Orvieto, with good reason. If you visit, do it as early as possible to avoid tourists etc. Take a walk around the back, down the steps etc. it's gorgeous.

The most unusual thing about the Duomo is the combination of white and Green Gray stone layers that cover the outside. The strong pattern breaks up the silhouette rather like a zebra and makes appear smaller than it actually is. There is an impressive Gold accented front façade but the interior is not as impressive as some the great Cathedrals.... More
