Owner description: Orvieta's magnificent Duomo (cathedral) is considered one of the must-see churches in Italy for its stunning gold-and-mosaic Gothic façade and magnificent frescoes by Luca Signorelli, which had a great influence on Michelangelo's work in the Sistine Chapel.

Really impressive place. Go in the early morning as it is almost empty and you can appreciate the grandure of the place.

It is very spaceous, you will pay from 3 to 5€ and be able to see the lateral wings of the Duomo where smaller rooms are located, one of them with the particularly famous fresco by Luca Signorelli "The Antichrist", this small chapel, on the right side, is particularly beautiful/impressive. The left chapel, the Chapel of Corporal is famous for hosting the corporal of the miracle of bolsena, central piece of the doctrine of transubstantiation, which states that the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ at the moment of consecration during the Mass.

The inner part of the church is very interesting and has the most interesting pieta I have ever seen. In addition the paradise and hell wall painting are amazing and can teach you a lot about the progress of art started by Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

The outer part is even more amazing the stripes and artwork in front of the church and the stripes all around it are a fantastic example to masonry at its best.

If you only look at the facade of the Duomo the visit to Orvieto will be worthwhile. The stunning reliefs that run across from just over shoulder height and higher tell their stories brilliantlyand doing full justice to them is worth the effort. Everywhere there is colourand variety

We visited this little town in July 2012. What a little gem and only an hour out of Rome. When you arrive on the train you just see the hill and once you get in the funicular and get to the top its like a little piece of heaven. Take a bus into town and there you come across this absolute master piece of art work. Who could have thought that anyone could build something like this. Go there at different times of the day and the building looks different. My best was the earlier afternoon as the sun was setting it shines brightly onto the Gold Fresco's at the the top of the Duomo. If you are lucky and can understand a little Italian there is an old gentleman who sits in front of the shops across the quad, he will tell you the whole history of the Duomo and the fresco's and statues that you see in front of you. If you stand in front of the Duomo on the left side in the corner is a gelato shop, so get some go back across the road grab a seat and enjoy the show. Absolutely breath taking and relaxing.
