Spello v. Spoleto as base for Umbria

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to be in Umbria for about 4 days in October and are trying to decide where to stay. We stayed in Umbria for several days in 2006 at the much loved Le Case Gialle, and it was deserving of the love bestowed on it, but this time we would like to stay in a town, so we don't always have to drive out to dinner, and so we can wander out for coffee or a drink on the square first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening. We would like to visit Gubbio, Montefalco, Bevagna, Trevi, Perugia, and whichever of Spello or Spoleto that we are not based in. I think we are willing to skip Assisi this time around. Might try to hit Orvieto on our way out from Rome. So which would be a better base, Spello or Spoleto? We also considered Perugia. We visited Spello when we were in Umbria before, so I know it is very beautiful, but I don't think we ate there. We have not been to Spoleto or Perugia. Our highest priority is eating and drinking well in beautiful surroundings. We also want to stay in a place that is convenient for driving to the other towns we want to visit. My husband also loves beautiful churches, but it seems we are likely all set with those in any of the above. So where would you stay?
