We are looking to stay somewhere with good train connections but traditonal for the christmas week - self catering - was wondering whether spoleto would be a good choice - thinking of rome for a day trip - but generally like just mooching around

I think either Spoleto or Spello would be good choice as they are both relatively central and have good train connections. You might also want to consider Foligno, a little bit off the usual tourist track, but it is the "city" of the central valley, so it has the most train connections, and during Christmas time will have great shopping as well!

Spoleto is a lovely town. It depends what you expect to do, but during x-mas period if might relatively be on the quiet side of things. Check out events etc.. Perugia might be livelier if that is what you're expecting.

If you want to find a base for walks, mountain visits, etc. Spoleto is perfect base for South Umbria. If you want to go in the mountains, the possibility is for very icy roads. Especially direction Leonessa. It simply depends on the type of winter it is. Chains would be required if you want to travel higher up in the mountains. Spoleto and further north/west OK. Todi, Montefalco, Scheggino, etc. all easy to get to.
