Orvieto

The Old Town Centre of Orvieto

Umbria Online Perched on top of a tufaceous rock plateau, the city of Orvieto rises out of the valley below like an island from the sea. Millions of years ago a sea did in fact cover the area, now wooded, where the river Paglia runs. Visitors can reach the old town centre either by leaving their car below and taking the funicular lift up or by using the ingenious system of lifts and escalators that have been dug out of the rock at Campo della Fiera.

Orvieto

The Duomo of Orvieto

Umbria Online The Duomo of Orvieto is one of the most important examples of Gothic architecture in Italy. Gothic style architecture in Italy developed substantial differences from its European equivalent, chiefly due to the different cultural heritage of the Italian peninsula and the particular historical moment, characterised by comuni and free city states, in which this form of architecture gained a foothold here.
