Kung Fu Kids discovering Orvieto City

Kung Fu Kids discovering Orvieto City

Etruscan ruins, opulent churches, stunning views: there are lots of incredibly cool things to do in Orvieto, Italy!

We’ve had our eye on this adorable hilltop town for a while: with its long history dating back to the Etruscans and picture-perfect setting on a cliff in Umbria, we were eager to explore its back streets, check out its Duomo (because every Italian town needs a Duomo!), and sample its delicious food.

Beyond that, though, we really had no idea what we would actually do there until we booked some train tickets and started planning our trip.

And to our surprise, it turns out that there are plenty of fun things to do in Orvieto!

Orvieto was one of the most important cities in the region during Etruscan times, and (much) later served as a home for the pope.

With a history like that, it should come as no surprise that the Orvieto of today is an engaging and multi-faceted place to visit.

Heading to this charming piece of Umbria soon?

Here’s what to do in Orvieto, Italy.

Orvieto’s Cathedral (usually known as the Duomo, as in most cities in Italy) has one of the most beautiful facades we have ever seen!

The carvings and mosaics on the Duomo practically demand that you plop down in the Piazza del Duomo and properly admire it for a few minutes.

Once inside, be sure to check out the Cappella di San Brizio!

While most of the interior of this Duomo is rather stark, this small chapel is absolutely magnificent–and disturbing.

The depictions of hell on the ceiling, complete with flying demons, countless acts of violence, and streams of blood, are some of the creepiest we have come across in Italy (which, frankly, is really saying something).

Kungfu Kids are very proud of their Etruscan origins, visiting an ancient Etruscan city was a truly exciting experience.
