Spoleto - Umbria

An ancient city on a foothill of the Apennines, Spoleto is noteworthy for its strategic geography; situated at the head of a broad valley and surrounded by mountains, it has been a fortified location since its occupation by Umbri tribes as far back as in the fifth century BC. Since then, the town has enjoyed a storied and prosperous history – written in paint, ink, wine and blood throughout the centuries. Today, Spoleto is known as home to Festival dei due Mondi – one of the world’s most prestigious International Arts events, showcasing theatre, dance, opera, concerts and art exhibitions.
