Spoleto The Essential
Interesting
This former Roman municipium, later capital of a Lombard duchy, is an Umbrian town perched on a hillside crowned by the Popes' fortress. Austere in appearance, Spoleto, a town dear to St Francis, is best explored on foot, where visitors can discover its winding alleys, palaces and medieval monuments. A dance, music and theatre festival is held here every summer.
