    This church, the moment you enter, may seem a bit 'bare, but do not be fooled. Take your time to admire the chapels, some of which are truly beautiful.

    I highly recommend the pedestrian path that passes in front of the entrance to the fortress: you can pass very close to the bridge of towers.

    One of the nicest Cathedral squares I've been to. Full of energy and peaceful. Nice to spend a couple of hours here.

    You can't miss this imposing fortress built in the 14th century as it towers over the city and valley below. It can be accessed after a relatively strenuous climb or take the easy route via escalator located behind the Duomo.

    The church itself is pretty average, but the best is offered by the crypt. A volunteer accompanied us along the visit explaining in an interesting and entertaining way the works, unique, contained in it.

    You can park wherever you want because the city has an elevator that takes you to different points of interest. I got off at the height of the Duomo. From there you can choose to go up to the fortress or take this very nice pedestrian route that culminates at the bridge of towers. Very nice.

    Narrow streets, many arches, small shops, medieval houses and Renaissance squares. And sometimes gardens with breathtaking views

    We took the walk up to Basilica di San Salvatore and walked the grounds. It is a beautiful structure. It is the oldest church in Spoleto. The doors and windows are very ornate and historic.

    The church was built on the slops of the hill at the foot of Monteluco di Spoleto at the beginning of the fifth century, as a bishops’ cemetery, and it went through a series of interventions. In the 12th century the present facade was made with the marvelous reliefs illustrating the scenes from the life of the apostle and moralistic messages taken from the medieval stories. The approach to the church via a large 17th century staircase is a nice experience itself. The interior of the church is very elegant in the Baroque style with an elliptical dome, unique in Umbria. The church is among the most beautiful religious buildings of Umbria!

    Effectively the centre of Spoleto and a good place to start looking for somewhere to eat and drink. Best to start hereb and work outwards. And it's easily reached from the car parks in the valley by the 1km trvelator up the hill.

    Built, starting in 1079, over an existing church. He artwork in here is outstanding. The front of the church was raised and redone in 1342, the artwork in these arches (from 16th century) is beautiful. After WWII this entire church was stripped down / re-worked to the appearance it had in the 15th century. There are still sections of frescoes from the 12th century. Many of the frescoes (now uncovered) are from the 14th and 15th century. There’s an inscription in the church dated 1079 stating the church was dedicated to a martyr that was murdered in a spectacle at a nearby Roman amphitheater. It's free, it's historic, it's art, what's not to love?

    The Roman arch built to honor Emperor Tiberius and his sons, marked the entrance to the city's Roman Forum. Remarkedly it is in excellent shape and is still utilized today.

    I stumbled upon Fontana di Piazza del Mercato by accident, but it was a pleasant surprise! The city if full of similar fountains, but this is perhaps the best

    AKA Drink Traveler! You will find this inscription in Latin next to this very special fountain, which is distinguished by the monstrous creature from which the water jet comes out. An obligatory stop, especially if you have toured the city on foot.
