Stop At: Duomo di Orvieto
A symbol of the city itself, the Duomo is one of the most beautiful in Italy. The Duomo is a magnificent building that brings together different architectural styles. In particular we can define a fine example and balance of Gothic and Romanesque styles. The intent was to create one large cathedral for the city, to replace two decaying churches that existed there before.
