Open on Sundays?

I noticed that the Coop in Spoleto is closed on Sundays...should we assume all shops, restaurants, and attractions will be closed on Sundays as well? Anything recommended for a Sunday?

No, you should not assume that everything is closed. Spoleto - and Italy in general - has not gone to commerce 24/7, but touristy shops and malls (if there are any nearby) are open Sunday. Many restaurants close Sunday, but some are open. Museums generally close Monday. Churches - there are several in Spoleto that qualify as attractions - are open Sunday but discourage tourist visits during services.

In our area - around Assisi, Gubbio all restaurants are open on Sundays - as Sunday lunch is a big affair - I think this is true of most of Umbria as well.

During July and August there are many supermarkets and small shops that open for limited hours on Sunday. Also Collestrada in Perugia is open 1 Sunday a month - look at their website for details. Most tourist attractions are also open Sundays and you can visit churches usually outside of the mass times, even on a Sunday. Ask locally for advice about Sunday shop openings...in your area.

Also most patisseria (cake shops) are also open Sunday mornings - for breakfast and cakes for desserts.

All the bars and restaurants are open in Spoleto on Sundays. The clothes shops open once a month on Sundays and on festival days. Spoleto is not a touristy area and relies mainly on local trade, the reason why the prices are NOT inflated !!!! And, yes, the patisserias (cake shops/open on Sundays) are to die for !!!
