Opera Del Duomo, Orvieto

Here is another of the Italian doorways, this one is in Orvieto, a small and lovely hill town between Florence and Rome. The Duomo there is magnificent, architecture, art, it has it all.  You take a lift up to the town, from there you can see the beautiful countryside. This door says “Opera del Duomo,” and it is positioned across the Piazza to the right as you face the Duomo.  The Cathedral steps are dangerous, two people in our group fell, there is a narrow trough of stone right at the bottom of the stairway; wear flat shoes!  I loved this town and this is one of my favorite doorways.
