Guests often ask me suggestions about the best restaurants, shops and places to visit in and around Spello. It’s hard to choose with all the alternatives this beautiful region has to offer… visiting once is not enough. After many years of living in Umbria, I have decided to share my hidden gems with you.
Foligno: Ideal city to go shopping and to enjoy the authentic daily life of the Italian province. Bevagna: This charming small town’s central square is the most beautiful in the Southern Umbrian Valley. The streets are easy to explore as they are all on level ground. Spello: The gem of Umbria, one of the most beautiful little towns in Italy. Famous for its artisan shops and its great restaurants. Perugia: Umbria’s state capital. Don’t miss the National Gallery and the Perugina chocolate museum. Montefalco: Famous for its Sagrantino wine. Nicknamed “Umbria’s balustrade” for its 360º views. Assisi: The mystical town of St. Francis, destination of pilgrims and art lovers alike.
