The Little American Church

Word has gotten out around town about the "chiesetta americana" that's finally found a home. While native Orvietani understand where to find us after just a few words of explanation, it can take less experienced Orvieto hands a bit longer to understand where we are located.

Corso Cavour is the main drag of Orvieto that runs from Piazza Cahen (where the funicolare station is) all the way to Piazza della Repubblica (where the town hall is located). Though our address is Corso Cavour, 63 - which would indicate a location right in the stretch of shops between the Drogheria Svizzera and the Torre del Moro - we are actually located on a small cul-de-sac that opens off the north side of the Corso. Look for an archway directly across from the Ricevetoria Lotto and walk to the end. If you notice a hairdresser and some professional studios, you're in the right place. Our door is well marked.

Finding us is the easy part - parking can sometimes be a bit tougher. Sundays the best bet is the pay spaces in Piazza del Popolo. Other days of the week excepting Thursday and Saturday mornings (because of the market) this is also a good option, though finding a spot can be more difficult. Other possibilities are the pay spaces in Piazza Marconi or Piazza Cahen (if you don't mind a bit of a walk). The new parking structure on Via Roma across from the ex Caserma is rumored to be opening this spring, which should free up the parking situation in town considerably.

From Piazza Cahen (funicolare) there is also a mini-bus that goes to Piazza della Repubblica, just a hop, skip and a jump from the church.
