Well worth the climb to the top

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.

It takes a lot of steps to get there but the view of Duomo and surrounding countryside is incredible. We had already done the hike below the city walls that day so the stairs to the top seemed to take forever. Luckily were were by ourselves going up so it didn't matter how quick you climbed it. Once we reached... More

We did ghe stairs to the tower about 40 minutes before closing. The lighting was perfect on the duomo. Got many amazing photos. A must do if you are in Orvietto overnight.

Climbing this high tower was my penance for eating a big lunch in La Buca di Bacco. A lift saves you the first 80 steps, but the next 160 you just have to climb. The view over the rooftops of Orvieto to the countryside beyond is however worth the effort.

A clock tower in the centre of Orvieto. The steps are easy to climb and it only takes a few minutes. My 5-year-old and 2-year-old managed it without too much difficulty. From the top you get gorgeous 360-degree views over Orvieto and the surrounding countryside. It must be one of the highest points in Umbria. I found it a bit... More
