Program
1 Days

In the majestic Duomo of Orvieto we will admire the masterpiece from the very early 16th century that reveals the extraordinary mastery of Luca Signorelli: the End of the World and the Last Judgement. These are famous frescoes, of great visual and emotional impact, that could be defined as "the Sistine Chapel of Orvieto". Perhaps you have already been here, but with a professional guide you will discover curiosities and details that you surely did not know. Moreover, it was only in 2019 that the great 16th-century statues of the Apostles and the magnificent Annunciation by Francesco Mochi returned to their place after more than 100 years of absence. But that's not all: we will also admire other masterpieces inside this splendid and rich cathedral. In the nearby Museo dell'Opera del Duomo we will see paintings and other important works. We will then take a walk through the town: we will also pass by the Piazza della Repubblica (where the town hall with its 16th-century façade and the Church of St Andrew stand) and various noble palaces. Finally, St Patrick's Well awaits us: we will make a spectacular descent into the belly of the earth to the depths of the water. It is a monument of great beauty, a unique work of architectural engineering due to Antonio da Sangallo the Younger.
