Just out from similarly styled Assisi, Spello is a pretty, ancient, walled town rising out of the Umbrian plains. The architecture will appeal to those with an interest in history. Spello was a Roman colony in the first century and it’s medieval walls have been built on top of the earlier Roman foundations made from smooth white stones and six original Roman gates, complete with inscriptions, survive. For a small town, Spello has done well from the church, there are around 25 small medieval and renaissance churches and chapels within it’s walls, the most famous dating from the 11th to 13th centuries.
