    On my first visit years ago I spent nearly two hours in awe of the chapel frescos by Lucca Signorelli. Some of his best work! On a return visit in 2022, I was still amazed and awed. A MUST visit.

    On our first trip to Orvieto years ago, we did not have time to take this tour and are so glad we did on this trip in March 2022. The tour guide was interesting and gave very good historical to present-day information about the caves. Put this on the top of your list to do there.

    It is interesting, but there’s a lot to stairs to tackle. If you’re older, you might just ask your guide to tell you about it, because the history is important, without actually climbing down and climbing back up.

    Little out of the way in a back alley but worth going to see. Very interesting and to think this is all underneath the city, If you take your ticket you can get discounts on another attraction. Family owned but so very professional and fasinating.

    This was a highlight of our trip to Italy! I reached out to the winery a couple of weeks in advance, and got a quick and friendly reply from Maurizio, who helped coordinate our travel from Orvieto (an easy train ride from Rome.) The sights, smells, and tastes of this tour were simply amazing, and we learned so much. We highly recommend this experience!

    Both the inside and outside of this building are not to be missed. The gorgeous frescos and facade of the building are my favorite part of Orvieto and are absolute show stoppers!

    Madonna del Latte is a one hour direct train trip from Rome to Orvieto. Leon, the owner of this boutique winery, explained his wine production and showed us his lovely vineyards, barrels and wine cellar. His fine wine tastings and gourmet cheese/meats were exceptional. Since it was winter, he invited us into his beautiful dining area with fireplace to experience the tastings. Leon was a very gracious host and answered all of our questions. We wish we had bought more of his wine since we drank most of it during the rest of our vacation. Highly recommended! You will have time to explore Orvieto after the wine tasting. Thanks Leon!!!

    TLDR: A must visit if you're in the area. (Don't use the public bathrooms though)

    This town is incredibly scenic, perched on top of small mountain with sheer cliff faces. There are walkways, that I highly recommend, that allow you to walk up theose cliff faces and take in the views.

    The center has maintained it's medieval aesthetic well. There are sightseeing trails, maps available and signs in the street for those that want to see as much as possible. There is plenty to do, and I can't recommend the cathedral enough.

    You could easily spend a day here, just enjoying the streets, not to mention the views of the surrounding landscape, the food and museums.

    The public bathrooms need a refresh. It costs 50c to use which is fine except... Men's toilets often don't work, taps don't work, there's no toilet paper akd the chipboard toilets seats have warped from all the urine they've soaked up. What am I paying 50c for?

    Overall, a must-visit if you're in the area.

    The duomo is wonderful and the two inner chapels are simply breathtaking. It is worth buying a combined ticket that allows you to go to several places for free. Exception is the archaeological museum, unfortunately. You should not miss the funicular, the easiest and most interesting way to get to the centro storico. The best porchetta is available at Il Negozietta, 5,5.- Euro with truffle cheese.

    We have been on many wine tours throughout the world, through the years and this one ranks among the best. We were shown vineyards, educated on the history of the family and wine making, brought to see where the wine is produced and then treated to the most incredible wine with appetizers using their own olive oil for a very reasonable price. We loved the wine and olive oil so much that we bought three cases. We have never done that; it was that good! So if you are in the area, please help out this little winery and make a visit. The pandemic has been rough on everyone but especially small businesses.

    This 12th century church that sits on Piazza della Repubblica is unusual because of its distinctive decagonal bell tower.

    Besides the many great artifacts in this museum, one of the best reasons to go is the view of the Orvieto Duomo 's mosaics. Ascend to the 3rd floor and there is a long bank of widows overlooking the great square on the Duomo. You will at the same level as many of the mosaics across the square, making viewing easier (and less crowded!)

    This is the oldest church in Orvieto, so is less ornate than the Renaissance-era churches. But the frescoes are beautiful, some of which have been restored. It's interesting to see the simple nature of the church from that time period. The bell tower, which still rings for Mass on Sunday and other times, also served as a watch tower. The church was strategically built on the edge of the walls for further protection from below. Admission is free and it's open most days.

    The painting of the donkey riding atop the wagon while the old man pulled it amused me at first. When I went inside the store and learned of the symbolism in the painting and all the other paintings by Verdirosi's daughter I was awestruck. I loved looking and learning about all of them. I could have spent hours there looking and listening at these interesting works of art. I ended up buying two posters plus his book. I feel so lucky to have stumbled into this shop and discovered Verdirosi. Color me a big fan.
