Bella Due. Spoleto Centre. Car NOT necessary. WiFi
Spoleto, Umbria, Italy
Additional Location Information
PLease note that Google may NOT show the exact location ie Rocca Dei Perugini.
Bella Due, with elevator and WiFi, is in Porta Fuga, in the Rocca Dei Perugini, a very beautiful palazzo in the most ancient part of the historic centre of Spoleto, entirely pedestrian, very pretty and teaming with shops, bars and restaurants.
A mellow city/town, the famous city of Spoleto is like a giant fairy castle with arches, tunnels and cobbled streets. At the top of Spoleto, a 15 mins walk or a short bus-ride from Piazza Garibaldi, a few minutes down the road, is the famous Ponte (a magnificent Roman aquaduct), which takes you immediately into the mountains. Also, here is Spoleto's pride and joy, a sensational piece of architecture, La Rocca, a castle, now used as an exhibition centre.
In the centre of Italy and of Umbria, Spoleto is the perfect location to base yourself, if you wish to visit the rest of Italy. Rome is easy to get to by train, about 1 he 20 mins. Naples is about 4 hours away. And, Venice is the furthest away, being 5 hours direct by train.
Spoleto resembles an illustration from one of those classic fairy-tale books. Walking through its cobbled, arched streets is like walking in a dream. It is the kind of place where fantasy meets reality and you believe that anything could happen !
Spoleto is older than Rome. However, it is not essential to be steeped in history to be able to appreciate the spirituality and awesome beauty of Spoleto. The spirit of its fascinating past is immersed in every stone and cobble. Within this mediaeval setting, you can also enjoy the finest wines, the best truffles and the most mouth-watering olive-oils in Italy in the myriad of bars and restaurants scattered in and around the tiny, arched streets. You can literally savour some of the best cooking in the world here. You can sit for hours in the piazzas, sipping real cappuccino and enjoying ice-creams to die for. And, for the really irreverent among you, there are always the shops and, not-to-be missed by any self-repecting Italian, that most famous of all Italian activities, the passagiata that takes place between 5.30pm and 7.30pm, come rain or shine !!!
For the sporty amongst you, there is a flash tennis club that you can use, which is within walking distance of almost anywhere you are staying or a short bus-ride from Piazza Garibaldi. And, there is pony trekking that takes place just outside of Spoleto. The stables are placed in a exquisite environment and, you can either go on long treks into the mountains or just do an hour or so in the nearby woods â€“ all supervised, the level of supervision depending on your level of expertise.
Other activities available are swimming, fishing, cycling, walking......these and many more activities such as wine-tasting and truffle-trails can be investigated at the tourist office in Piazza Liberta in central Spoleto (0039) 0743 238 920/1 - the persons to speak to are Max or Cyncia, both of whom speak perfect English and who are very helpful. Max, in particular. Here there are also maps with places of special interest marked on trails (including the Rocca dei Perugini) as well as many more walking trails in the hills round about.
It is, also, very easy to reach Assisi, Perugia, Bevagna, Orvieto, Trevi, Norcia, Todi, the Gran Piano and Castellucio, all between 10 to 50 minutes drive. Or, there are the trains and the busses. Our nearest lake is Bracciano, a small town with a castle, where the wedding took place of Tom Cruise and Katy Holmes, about a 50 minute drive.
However, while all these other Umbrian towns and cities are worth a visit, Spoleto is the one to actually stay a while because it has everything ! Of all the Italian cities, Spoleto is arguably the most beautiful and one of the most diverse in what it has to offer the world traveller. Very much a town and country experience, you can lounge in bars, gelaterie and restaurants, meander up and down the cobbled arched streets or, you can don your walking kit and set off into the hills, treading the very same foot-paths of the millions of pilgrims who have trod this path since time immemorial. Walk for a maximum of 15 minutes in any direction from anywhere in Spoleto and you can be in the mountains, immersed in the most spectacular sceneryâ€¦â€¦.bright green valleys, hills covered with olive groves, thick woodland, monasteries, castles and tiny villages dotted here and there, a truly magical environment ! Particularly, if you start your walk from across the aquaduct.
Glamour and style ! Or, walking boots and a stick ! The choice is yours !
