Location: Italy

Personal overview

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

and more.

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.
