  • Superb building eith youth chorals rehearsing inside. Well worth the visit. Remarkable statues of saints and affreschi. Wish I'd read up on it beforehand.

  • Spectacular building! Very unique. Much of the attraction can be seen from the outside but I think the €5 entrance ticket is worth it as the altar, chapels and organ inside are beautiful. Nicely preserved frescos. The entrance ticket also gains you access to a small museum and the space below the church. The highlight of Orvieto.
  • The history that involves this amazing architecture is fabulous. You can see the old testament and the new one carved on the walls of the entrance of the church. A really beautiful place and full of history. Hire a tour guide so you can learn more about it.
