This is one of the most unique duomos I have ever seen. The facade is fascinatingly intricate, and you can see the amount of work that went into perfecting it. Pass on paying to go inside. Outside is the real attraction! Grab a gelato, stare...More

A beautiful Duomo. We decided not to pay to go inside. However the carvings on the front of the church, which tell the story of the life of Christ, are amazing. My group spent quite a while going over each story and figuring out what...More

We saw a lot of churches in our two weeks in Tuscany but Orvieto’s Duomo was one of our favorites. First, the town was absolutely empty which is not true of the Tuscan cities with similar duomos. The light in the late afternoon is amazing....More

This historically significant cathedral was decimated in WWII, but completely and lovingly restored. Somehow, knowing this added to the spiritual experience. No trip to this beautiful town would be complete without a guided tour of this masterpiece.

This is one of the most beautiful Duomo in all Italy with its very unusual black & white stripped marble exterior. Although rather plain on the inside it also has 2 side chapels with famous frescoes.

The Duomo is literally and figuratively the biggest thing in Orvieto and a must-see. Start by carefully looking at the stunning and exceptionally detailed exterior before going inside. Allow time to admire the beautiful frescoes by Luca Signorelli and others in the San Brigio chapel...More
