  • One suggestion - Wait until the early afternoon to take photos of the facade. The sun will be in the west and shining directly on the front of the Duomo. It will make the mosaics glow and highlight...

  • Must see. The Duomo alone is worth the travel
  • Very beautiful Duomo / cathedral steeped in history and art. Can see the alabaster windows and stained glass inside. Floor is not the original mosaic like in Siena. The facade is gorgeous for those who don't want to pay the 5€ fee. But fee also included inside art painting and sculptures, tombs underground and Orvieto tunnels tour. Light a candle.
