Spoleto Cathedral Full review
avatarpicture roxanekohl THE BEST REVIEW
Worth A Visit : Spoleto surprised me. It's an ancient city with a multitude of Roman ruins, but the city itself seems completely modern with busting restaurants, busy streets, and lovely art galleries. It has been occupied since 241 BC and since recognized as an important strategic location due to the mountains surrounding the city, inside of a broad valley.

Palazzo Pretorio Full review
avatarpicture isabellaone THE BEST REVIEW
Just Amazing : This restaurant is almost a hidden gem. It is quite large but is around a corner in San Donato that if someone does not point you the way, it is easily missed. It has a number of excellent seafood selections and an extensive wine list.

Worth A Visit : All Assisi roads lead to the Piazza del Commune. This area of Assisi, at least for me, was like the heart of the city. Great place to congregate if you are in a group to sit and reflect and plan. For the most part, you can not avoid this when you visit Assisi

Such A Lovely Place : Such a lovely place, especially in the down season where there aren't as many tourists. We didn't stay here but visited for the day.

Charming Place : Suggestive. Hidden in the woods, only on foot, is one of the largest Buddhist temples in Europe. Only I do not remember the name. They also do hospitality. But it does not appear on any map, but with Googles I invite anyone to find it because I was impressed by how beautiful it was.

Il Ponte delle Torri Full review

Soothing Place : Ponte delle torri is a very strong robust structure which withstood all the tests of time. Right from the times of Romans. And you can see that it is still looking as strong and as valid today as it must have been then. Although it is not in use but it is fully functional even today.
