Orvieto – Umbria

Orvieto is home to what is said to be Italy’s finest Gothic Cathedral and the façade is truly magnificent. Inside is Signorelli’s fresco cycle of The Last Judgement, for which you have to buy a ticket in the information shop opposite the cathedral. It is a bit further, but worth it for the cathedral (one of Umbria’s key sights), and could be combined with a wine tour of the area.

Approx 1 hour drive
