Spoleto was our favorite old town. Different parts of the city are connected by narrow alleys with arches and cobblestone streets. They go in every direction but all alleys eventually lead to a piazza and a way back to where you started.
Spoleto began as a colony in 241BC. Our hotel overlooked the ancient Roman Theater. Today it is best known for The Festival of 2 Worlds, an incredible 17 day cultural event with opera, ballet, concerts, cinema, workshops etc. held in venues all over the old city.

Summer has finally arrived and we are happily heading toward Italy's east coast and a couple of beach towns. But Spoleto was a wonderful city in which to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary on June 18.
