Porta Venere was erected in the Augustan age and included in a considerable number of buildings. The tower-gate complex has been the object of at least two restorations: in the years from ten to twenty, when many buildings of the Middle Ages were demolished, and...More

Re built gate into the delightful city of Spello, tours available around the gate towers. But if you miss the tour you still have a great place to view.

The place is beautiful: Porta Venere and the two towers are wonderful per se, but the landscape and the view over the countryside is gorgeous (especially at sunset).GO!

The have just recently restored these towers and they are stunning. I love to go there at all times of day and watch how the light changes and the shadows move. Sunset is really pretty though. By Spring 2014 the streets should be restored as...More
