Beautiful!

The Duomo is one of the great churches in Italy. The sheer size and magnificence is breath taking. Make sure you tour early before the buses arrive!

Orvieto is a small city in southwestern Umbria with a very long and rich history and just an hour’s train ride from Rome. The city is situated on a flat summit and is accessed with a short funicular cable railway which is situated directly opposite the main railway station. In mid-December the city is sparsely populated making it easy to... More

There are many things to admire about this church: the carvings and mosaics on the exterior front; the layering of stone visible inside and out; the paintings inside; the interior space; windows made of thinly cut alabaster; the rose window; the way it sits in the square and is visible from many directions -- wonderful.

Orvieto's major landmark dominating the medieval city. Gothic cathedral with marvelous pink marble and golden mosaic. Inside to visit as well. Enjoy!

Three-gabled frontage glimmering with gold that changes as the sun passes. Beautiful mosaics and a huge rose window. The inside is filled with art work too. It truly is a feast not to be missed.

There are truly amazing churches in Italy (and tens of thousands of indifferent ones). This is on the amazing list. Right up there with Florence and Sienna.

It is hard to put into words how beautiful this Church truly is - and in person, it is magnificent. Every time I go to Orvieto, I always gasp when I see her. One can tour, or just sit and observe. It is hard to miss right in the center and close to my favorite pottery stores - but run,... More

Not the fanciest inside but the history of this building make it worth the visit along with the sacred cloth artifact. I'll keep reiterating that to really appreciate these special sites one either needs to do extensive research or hire a guide - and I'll vote for the guide. The alternating colored limestone is amazing in its simplicity and the... More
