Yesterday we visited the Duomo in Orvieto, famous for its Renaissance era frescos and ornate carvings on the front. Due to an agreement signed during WWII, none of the historic area of Orvieto was bombed, lucky for us! The chapel below the organ, pictured left, contained the tomb of a man, Saint ????, who helped the Pope rid Orvieto of pagans- his mummified skull visible through a glass case below an altar (too dark to get a pic).
Next stop was the nearby Torre del Morro. This tower is home to a clock and chime that preside over the city on the hour. It's about ten flights of stairs to the top, but the view is worth every step!
