The Duomo di Orvieto is one of the more picturesque cathedrals in Italy...if not anywhere. Begin in 1290 and taking almost 300 years to complete, its a masterplace of Italian architecture. Perched on a hill and dominating this small Umbrian town its façade is spectacular, huge rose-colored circular stained glass, bas-relief work and bronze doors make an impressive view from... More

You may not want to skip this church on your visit to Italy. This place gave me a solemn feeling in the area. People around are courteous. Security is in the area as well. There are place to shop for souvenirs.

What a massive structure, A small charge to enter but what a scenic building. The walls are covered in paintings reflecting the history of the area. Take time to walk around into all the coves and rooms.

Orveinto is an easy 75min train ride from Rome. This is an unusually colorful duomo. In early Feb there are few tourist so you can have the duomo to yourself. Take time to look at the other rooms. Just sit and take time to pray.

At the other end of the Church courtyard is a long bench seat where you can sit an admire the incredible façade of this Church for hours. Sometimes Church façades become much of a muchness in Italy but the façade on Duomo di Orvieto is INCREDIBLE. By far my favourite and the most decorative and interesting. Easily spent hours looking... More

I believe the Cathedral in Orvieto is supposed to have the most colorful facade of any other Italian cathedral. It is really spectacular! We visited Orvieto on a very rainy day. However, the lack of sunshine did not affect the beauty of the front of the cathedral. It is definitely a must -see sight.

Obviously a must see while in Orivieto. Beautiful artwork, history and sculpture. We visited on a Monday in late January, but still a nice spring feel to the day. Very quite, no lines and had a great time not rushing or dealing with the crowds.

one of Italy's finest Cathedral from the 12th/1th century and is a must see. We were inside almost 2 hours for the full tour which cost 5 euro [$5.55 U.S.]
