  • Because I visited after sightseeing in Civita, I was not able to enter the interior of the cathedral at night, but the facade is a mosaic painting or a strange facade. I walked like a walk at night, but it was a town where you can taste the medieval feeling. The road is narrow and there are many cars driven by local people, so be careful. When I went by car, the parking lot of veterans is written on the site as free, but when I asked the woman who had stopped here, it was 1 euro in the whole day. Please note that. If you put 1 euro in the machine, you will be issued a parking ticket, so just put it on the dashboard. Other places seem to be a little higher parking fee, so for your information

  • The Cathedral is imposing them from every corner you get to Orvieto. Once you arrive in front of the facade you are left with your mouth open and your nose up. Beautiful example of Romanesque and Gothic art. The facade is enriched by the four low reliefs that represent Genesis the tree of Jesse and the life of Jesus and finally the Universal Judgment. The mosaics represent images of the Virgin Mary. Inside there is a central aisle where the statues of the Apostles are placed; and two aisles, on the right the nova chapel with frescoes depicting the universal judgment, while on the left is the Chapel of the Corporal where the Corporal's Tabernacle is guarded and displayed containing a linen tablecloth stained by the blood of Jesus of the miracle of the Eucharist of Bolsena.

  • This is a wonderful place to visit on your Italy trip.It makes for a relatively restful day in a smaller town which dates back to Etruscan times. The cathedral itself is beautiful and impressive and sets the atmosphere for the rest of this quaint Village on a Hilltop. My 26 year old son enjoyed this town more than Rome, Florence, and Venice. The train stops here on its way from Rome to Florence so it is a convenient place to stop in to relax for a day. There are a lot of handcrafted pieces for sale in cute little shops and delicious food is available. Highly recommended.!!
  • Orvieto is situated at hillside. Wonderful town with a brilliant cathedral from medieval ages. It is really colorful. It stands on a square in the heart of old town. Beautiful exterior and breathtaking interior. Don't miss its chapel with extraordinary frescoes.
