Torre del Moro, Orvieto

(4.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Climb the 236 steps and treat yourself to an amazing view over Orvieto and the surrounding landscape from the top of Torre del Moro, one of the city's most imposing structures. The 47 m (154 ft) tower, now the symbol of the city, was originally built in the 13th century and first belonged to the pope before it became the property of the city. Over the centuries it has served various purposes, from wartime observation platform to the city's main water tank. Today, its clock and bells tell the time. If you don't feel like climbing all the way up, there is a lift that takes you halfway up the tower, leaving you with only 100 steps to the top. Our Orvieto trip generator makes visiting Torre del Moro and other Orvieto attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Great views over Orvieto and the Umbrian countryside. Walk to the top not too tiring (about 250 steps) and lift can take you halfway up.
  • Great views over the entire town of Orvieto, and - on a clear day - far into the countryside beyond. Well worth the climb to the top.
  • Great views!
