Orvieto Pictures

A look at the Umbrian Hill Town of Orvieto

By

Orvieto is a picturesque medieval hill town in Umbria, dramatically perched on a tufa ridge. Orvieto's top sight is its medieval Duomo or Cathedral, one of the best in Italy. The stunning cathedral facade is decorated with mosaic art work that shines beautifully in sun or rain. Orvieto can easily be visited as a day trip from Rome but it makes a good base for visiting nearby hill towns and attractions in Umbria and Northern Lazio. Our Orvieto Travel Guide has details about what to see, where to stay, transportation, and where to go near Orvieto.

Enjoy these pictures of Orvieto taken in late October, a nice time to visit with very few tourists in town. Click on a thumbnail photo to see it larger.
