Spoleto is a great example of an Italian hill town. It's also the home to the Festival dei Due Mundi-the Spoleto Festival, as it's otherwise known. Off the main piazza, look out for a little trattoria called La Lanterna-its food is not overpriced and it offers daily specials in season. My only amico spoletano (spoletan friend) turned me on to the place.

This is the town that first made me fall in love with Umbria, return 10 times and write seven books about the region. It seems almost fake in its central Italian hill town perfection. When you first look at a map, you'll see streets that seem impossibly narrow. And they are; many of the central 'streets' are cobblestone pathways and stairways, tucked in between ancient stone houses where families have been living for hundreds and hundreds of years. And, if that's not enough, Spoleto explodes each June and July with the Spoleto Festival (Festival dei Due Mundi), when musicians, playwrights and artists from around the world descend upon the small village for three weeks of culture and entertainment. Don't miss hiking to the Rocca above town for a view that I can almost guarantee will bring tears to your eyes.Recommended for:Local Culture

Spoleto has a unique charm that keeps the visitor wanting more.
It isn't as well known as some of the other towns in Umbria so the masses (unaware) haven't spoiled this truly special place.
The central focal point is a medieval bridge that has great view's of the countryside. There are many archaeological areas including a duomo that is breathtaking. The warmth of the people will keep you coming back again and again.
