Enjoyed sunset on the castle terrace, a lively film festival and related activities, all free of charge. This lovely town offers a wide choice of local crafts and products, can’t be missed if visiting the region.

Attractive town on a raised plateau giving views around. The cables and wires have all benn buried underground which makes a big diffrerence. Clean attractive stone roads and pavements.

Very nice small town, it gives you such a nice, romantic feeling when walking through this little architectural gem by night. Definitely worth a visit.

Quiet clean and has also some architectural sites. Walking through the silent town gives you a taste back to medieval time.

We went to Specchia by chance during the festival "cinema del reale". We discovered a beautiful village with plenty of art , small, expositions and mediaeval architecture.

Wonderful churches, palazzi and the castle. An amazing baroque town - a miniature Florence. Great restaurants and ice creams too. A lovely park.

The locals clearly take great pride in their small town which was clean and tidy. It was raining the morning we visited, and there were not many people in the town. A friendly local directed us to the small tourist information office in the main...More
