Charming Town of Spello Italy The small town of Spello is located in Perugia province in Umbria, a landlocked region of central Italy. According to Wikipedia: The densely-inhabited town, built of stone, is of decidedly medieval aspect, and is enclosedin a circuit of medieval walls on Roman foundations. Spello is an ancient jewel of a town that is perfect for immersing yourself into Italian life. Imagine lazing away the day on the balcony with wine and cheese recommended by the local salumeria owner and strolling about the ancient city streets while appreciating the surrounding scenery. Because Spello is not a part of the usual tourist’s trail, tourists only happen to come to town from time to time.
