The amount of history packed into Spoleto seems disproportionate to the size of the small Italian city.

A 1st century BC Roman Bridge, Ponte Sanguinario, is one of the older structures, while 16th century Palazzos could be considered modern additions to the town. The three week Festival dei Due Mondi is a cultural celebration that puts Spoleto on the map for the rest of the world.
