The rate includes a lift, free of charge, to and from the station (ie arrival and departure), if you are without a car. This offer is subject to Laurie, my husband being available and the car being OK. To date, we have always been able to provide this service ! Arrival/Departure dates flexible, subject to availability. Spoleto is a mellow city/town that predates Rome, with mountains all around. This famous city is like a giant fairy castle with arches, tunnels and cobbled streets. At the top of Spoleto, a 15 mins walk or a short bus-ride from Vista Rocca, a few minutes down the road, is the famous Ponte (a magnificent Roman aquaduct), which takes you immediately into the Sacred Mountains. Also, here is Spoleto's pride and joy, an equally incredible piece of architecture, La Rocca, a castle, now used as an exhibition centre. With free WiFi internet access, Terrazza Splendida, a fabulous, air conditioned apartment, is in the historic centre of Spoleto, buzzing with shops, bars and restaurants as well as ancient monuments, churches and museums at every twist and turn of Spoleto's arched and cobbled streets. is located in Porta Fuga, one of Spoleto's oldest mediaeval streets. The whole area is pedestrian, having undergone much restoration in the last few years. So, it really is very beautiful, indeed. The best location ! One of the most impressive features of Terrazza Splendida is its huge, sunny terrace with pretty hill views. 1 double bedroom + 1 twin bedroom - beds can be joined, by request/1 shower rm/WC. Sleeps 4. It is possible to sleep up to 2 extra persons in large sitting/dining room at 50 euros/per person/per week. A car is NOT necessary as you are just 10 minutes walk from the train station and the bus terminus or a very short bus-ride. From the train station, you can get to practically anywhere in Italy. And, from the bus station, there are myriad of really interesting journeys you can take from little local rides around the hills, visiting a diversity of hill-top villages, to places as far afield as Castelluccio and Norcia - spectacular rides ! A fabulous apartment, Terrazza Splendida, is in the beautifully restored palazzo, Rocca dei Perugini (no 24 on the official Spoleto guide map), in the historic centre of Spoleto, a palazzo that has the most magnificent location in Spoleto. However, there is more ! This very beautiful building, which houses some of the most important people of these parts.......judges, architects, a chief of police..... is of immense historical significance for Spoleto because, just after the turn of the century, the Perugini conquered Spoleto and built the now-named Rocca dei Perugini as a strong-hold to guard their position and reign over the Spoletini. These were bloody times, indeed, for both the Spoletini and the Perugini because the Spoletini fought back by occupying the Torre Del'Olio just a few metres up the hill, a lane called Porta Fuga, and, there, they watched for the Perugini as they passed below, immediately dousing and killing them with burning oil. Just 2 years, and, many deaths by burning oil later, the Spoletini regained power in Spoleto and, ever since, Spoleto and Perugia have had an uneasy relationship ! All the apartments in this listed building, the Rocca dei Perugini, are serviced by a lift as well as a staircase. And, we have a private car space right next to the lift, in a private car-park that you can hire for 50 euros/week. However, it is quite easy to park in the nearby lanes, just a few minutes walk away, for free. More

About the neighbourhood
The famous city of Spoleto, in the middle of Umbria, in the centre of Italy, is perfectly positioned on a hill. Surrounded by mountains, there are plenty of outdoors activities available...horse-riding, rambling, caving, cycling, white water-rafting, swimming, bird-watching, sky-gliding, hiking, flying and tennis. And/or, you can go olive oil tasting, wine tasting, truffle hunting. Or, you can learn to cook AT ANY LEVEL, like an authentic Italian chef. You can drive to the Adriatic in 2 hours. The drive there is spectacular. Along the Valnerina, you pass Norcia and then on to San Benedetto Del Tronto, a truly Italian beach resort. Along the way, you can take a 20 minute detour just after Norcia and visit the Gran Piano....a place that is a must to visit - it is truly magical. And, here...
