Spello, Umbria - The Town of Flowers
Mosaics Made of Flowers - Spello, Italy

Spello

Cities and Towns in Umbria

The town of Spello is a town located on the hills of the region of Umbria in the center of Italy which is about 1 and a half hours north of Rome and  only six miles south of Assisi though fareless touristy than the nearby towns to its north. Spello is known as the the "City of Flowers" because it boasts beautifu flower-lined streets.

Perrched high on the hill overlooking the valley, visiting the town which is mostly car-free, will give your legs a nice workout. Via Consolare goes from the bottom to the top of the town. Views from the terrace of the II Trombone restaurant will leave you speechless. This picturesque town has bastions and gateways that bear witness to its past as a Roman settlement.

The Church of Santa Maria Maggiore has the Baglioni Chapel with breathtaking frescoes. By the alter are frescoes by Perugino. Nearby, in the Church of Sant'Andrea, built in 1025, is a painting by Pinturicchio and a crucifix attributed to Giotto. At the base of town Roman mosaics were discovered in 2005. In the springtime for the Infiorate del Corpus Domini, inhabitants paint images on the streets with flower petals.

Visiting Spello and the region of Umbria is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to Italy who don't want to do the typical tourist stuff!  There are great vineyards and wonderful properties to stay in, in the town itself or outside.  

Not only does staying in Spello make for some incredible day trips in the region of Umbria - it's also a great base for visiting the regin of Le Marche and one of the most incrediblly situated towns - Castellluccio di Norcia, overlooking Italy's highest glacial plain still filled today with wild horses.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
