This is a beautiful church and worth the time to explore. We didn't really research Spello, our tour driver suggested it. The town was preparing for a flower festival and everything was just beautiful, but the highlight for us was exploring this historic and fascinating...More

The church is very interesting from architectural aspect:all "prints" of earlier rebuilding can be seen - inside enjoyable paintings.

As I hadn't researched Spello in advance, I was taken by surprise when I entered this rather plain-looking church and discovered such an ornate and beautiful interior. Clearly the pride and joy is the small chapel containing the Pinturicchio frescoes and they are certainly worth...More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but terrific statues and frescos inside. Can photograph the statues, but not the main fresco. Small, but very much worth a visit.

This church has important paintings by Pinturicchio and Perugino. I'll just keep writing to reach 100 characters. There.

You spent the day in Assisi, and what to do tomorrow? 9 minutes' train ride from Assisi, you arrive at Spello and begin the climb upward toward Santa Maria Maggiore and the Baglioni Chapel. This spotless, charming hilltop town gives you views of Assisi in...More

A somewhat bland exterior conceals a wonderful interior, full of beautiful paintings and frescoes. The Baglioni chapel is the undoubted highlight, where you can spend several minutes surrounded by Pinturicchio's world-famous frescoes. We managed to spend 25 minutes in the chapel, thanks to a steady...More

There is a flat, new section of the city at the base of the hill. Find parking there. You might be able to find parking at the very top, and walk down.
