Italy: Where to base in Umbria, Todi or Spello?

Jump to last reply

I'm in the process of planning a 2+ week trip to Tuscany and Umbria that we'll be taking in early summer. Since we'll have a car we'll definitely stay one week in Montepulciano and use it as a base to explore Chianti, the area around Montepulciano/Montalcino, San Galgano, Cortona and other areas in the north. The question now is where do we base ourselves for the more southern/eastern part of the trip? I'm leaning towards either Todi or Spello. Has anyone out there been to both and have an opinion one way or another or have other suggestions. Other areas/towns on the itinerary are Pitigliano, Assisi, Orvieto, Trevi, Montefalco, Civita di Bagnoregio, Spoletto and Narni, Norcia and the Piano Grande. If it makes any difference we're more into beautiful towns and landscapes to drive and photograph than museums. I'd love to find a town of the same size and/or flavor of Montepulciano. Any advice you can provide is much appreciated!
