Not a very busy touristy place and THAT is what makes this special. The views from the top are just spectacular. I was there alone and spent about an hour just admiring the views of the town down below as well as the hills in the distance. Peaceful and quiet - it's a fantastic place to watch the sunset without... More

The view from the top of this tower is amazing and refreshingly inspiring. We observed the ferie d'agosto parade to the Duomo from the tower. A truly fantastic experience. The Italian countryside is visible for miles from the top and it is also a great place to get that special sunset picture of the Duomo. The climb is fairly easy... More

The views at the top are well worth the climb! A 360 degree view of all of Orvieto await after about 200 or so steps. Gorgeous!!!

It is a long climb--no elevators. The view was worth it, even on 90 plus degree days. Give yourself about 30 minutes to enjoy fully. If you are really fit, you can tackle it more quickly.

Great views over the entire town of Orvieto, and - on a clear day - far into the countryside beyond.

Quite some steps, the elevator only goes to the second floor. The view is magnificent, both on the duomo and the other buildings in Orvieto, and on the country surrounding the city.

It's cheap (2.80€), elevator takes you to second floor. From there you take steps. It's not hard and it's worth it. The view is amazing.

A short journey up a lift followed by c250 steps takes you to the highest point in Orvieto. Great place to spend 15-20 minutes looking at the skyline. Worth a trip.

We stopped over for a few hours in Orvieto and visited Torre del Moro. For a 13th century tower it was quite easy to climb. New replacement stairs make the climb quite easy. Wonderful views when you reach the top.

Well worth a visit and the views from the top are fantastic. There's a lift takes you up part of the way if you want but there's still a fair few steps to climb after that (about 160 if I remember) but it's very safe and well worth the effort.
