Orvieto, a medieval town that rises from the plain on a base of tufa, is just an hour out of Rome but another world. The duomo (cathedral) at Orvieto is reknowned for its grandeur and beauty. This iPhone shot adds a golden tone, but the structure is banded with white and black, giving the facade almost a modern look.
