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.

This is a church that took 30 years to plan and 3 centuries to build. Well worth the visit. Magnificent frescoes on the front of the church. Also, very intricate carving.

This Duomo definitely competes with the more well known churches. Amazing frescos of Signorelli's work (some Fra Angelica's as well)

The bas reliefs, Sculptures, mosaics, frescos and bronze doors take your breath away. To think of the hours, years and talents which went into the labor of this cathedral are unimaginable. This is one of several beautiful cathedrals we saw in Tuscany and we were awed by them all.

Orvieto is a small city (if "city" is not an exaggeration), yet it had this very impressive cathedral which dominates its immediate surroundings. Very impressive face and an interior to match.

This cathedral is so unique with its candy-striped walls and pastel and gold façade. It's beautiful and airy and unlike anything else in Italy!
