We dined in summer 2011 at La Bastiglia on a day trip to Spello. Afterwards we promised to return & stay at the hotel...which we did last week. Spello is the quintessential Italian Hill Town and its narrow alleys are all flowerbox lined & pristine. Because Spello is small, most tourists are day tourists. La Bastiglia is located at the upper end of the city and away from the main tourist street, Via Cavour. Therefore, La Bastiglia commands a quiet perch looking out toward the mountains with the valley below. It's a bit dicey driving a rental car up into Spello to La Bastiglia (the smaller the rental car the better), but once you arrive, parking is free & easy. We had our daughter with us, so the fact that La Bastiglia has a wonderful pool that overlooks the valley made this a nice place to slow down & relax after touring around the larger cities of Umbria. If you're tired of watching tour bus after tour bus pull into Florence or Siena or Assisi, I suggest a night or 2 in Spello to remind you why Italy is such a wonderful family oriented place to vacation.
