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.

A beautiful duomo in the lovely town of Orvieto. Definitely worth the trip. Wish we would have gone inside.

The frescoes by Fra Angelico are not to be missed. Plus, this site is part of the Orvieto Unica Card, which is maybe the best deal in any Italian city I've been to so far. The Duomo is beautiful and you should plan to spend about a half hour just in Cappella di San Brizio to see Fra Angelico's glorious work, and Signorelli's captivating work is in there as well. Stunning.

Since the renovation some years ago, there have been changes such as a modest charge to enter. Understandable as it is quite costly to keep up. But a surprise to some if you don't know the extent of the renovation. There is a magnificent little chapel that houses the Signorelli fresco. Quiet significant as these paintings are the inspiration for Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel work. The fresci in this chapel were cleaned some years ago and are bright and colorful now. The amber windows in the cathedral are amazing, too. Too many other fine things here to detail; just visit!

We would have picked another day. Don't get me wrong, this place is stunning inside. Unfortunately Kevin Costner was doing a concert that night, so the outside was blighted by lights, sound equipment, etc. This, obviously, spoiled the photos and our ability to view it properly but I appreciate that's just the way things sometimes go. Well worth visiting.

I hadn't visited the Duomo for bout 40 years, but it had remained one of my favorites. I had forgotten how wonderful the interior was. The piazza outside is wonderfully quiet at night.
