The Duomo is interesting and impressive, and the Rocca is big and imposing, but the real gem of Spoleto is this unassuming Basilica outside the city walls. It's not that far, all things considered, but in Spoleto you get used to everything being just a...More

We found that it is open from 10-12 and then 3-6. The inside is so very impressive. The columns, frescoes and just the general feel is fantastic.

This place is ancient although there is some dispute as to how old it is. The building materials are around 2nd century Roman, but this was not their first use. Parts are a wonderful example of palaeochristian jerry-building with mismatched lumps of pillar propped up...More

San Salvatore is an ancient, often-rebuilt church that overlooks a small, but impressive monumental cemetery. It is quiet, and full of architectural masterpieces.

What a church! It's not very well mantained, but this gives the basilica the look of an old roman temple. When you arrive there, a 10' walk from Spoleto's north end, you see nothing special , but when you go inside, the view is stunning:...More
