Tour of Spoleto

The ancient town of Spoleto is about 30 miles from Todi, in the south-east part of Umbria: the old town is perched on top of a hill overlooking the Roman Via Flaminia.

Rich in art and history, Spoleto is well known among art & music lovers due to the renowned Festival of the Two Worlds, opened in 1958 by Giancarlo Menotti (Italian composer and writer, naturalized American); his aim was the joining of European art and music with American. Mr. Menotti died in Monte Carlo in 2007.
