The Duomo di Orvieto is one of the most impressive cathedrals in Italy. However, when inside this beautiful space be sure to set aside enough time to admire and meditate on the frescoes by Luca Signorelli. On each wall is a brilliant depiction of the...More

Goodness gracious how many Apocalypses did I see as I toured Italian churches? Many, but none in as much closeup detail as the San Brizio chapel in Orvieto's duomo. I was told that this set of Apocalypse frescoes was known to Michelangelo and informed his...More

The ceiling of this chapel is absolutely amazing! The waiting tell Biblical stories. The judgement day panels are quite striking.

What a BEAUTIFUL Duomo! The sheer height makes it appear larger than it is but the colors and art are just amazing. It’s a must see when in Orvieto

Painting no a painting is one thing, but all four walls of a chapel? With a story as big and complex as Signorelli did? Just amazing and incredible to look at and understand what he faced. The work is beautiful, detailed and awesome.

Three centuries to complete. Amazing work of art. It is worth the trip to Orvieto to see the Duomo. Hire the official guide if you want to appreciate the meaning of the exterior of the church.

We were here to wander the streets of Orvieto, and ended up spending most of our time here. If you can get a tour, do so as the art is amazing.

Coupled with a trip to the Duomo and you trip to Orvieto will be a forever memory! The frescos are well preserved and the ceiling is fabulous!
