Spoleto is another postcard-looking town that I can’t wait to explore;
either looking at it from outside or observing the landscapes around it from inside - you would have an incredible made-for-canvas view.
It is a small place, but every detail of it tells a story:
a monumental 14th century “bridge of the towers” that welcomes the visitors and adds a dreamlike aspect to the town;
a graceful fortress from the same epoque noticeable from far-far away;
built in a Romanesque style Spoleto cathedral(Duomo) dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary;
a futuristic contracture of “Spoletosfera” gifted to the city by the outstanding inventor Buckminster Fuller
A high location of Spoleto provides a visitor with an astonishing panoramic view on the beautiful Umbria’s nature and alluring suburbs.
And if you are a performing and visual arts enthusiast - you should definitely check the annual international Spoleto festival held in the beginning of summer.
