Utterly Umbria...feedback on my itinerary for a week in Spello please!!

Jump to last reply

We'll be heading back to Italy on September 20..be still my heart!! This will be our fourth trip and on this one we are taking it easy and slowing down. We have an apartment in Spello for a week and an apartment in Rome for a week. I would appreciate input on my current plans for our week in Spello. I don't want a race to "see" all the towns...I want time to sit, to sip and to savour. Some of the days can be switched if it's advantageous....best for Sunday, market day, etc?

I welcome any recommendations or tips you have have...especially help with parking!

After overnighting in Orvieto:

Day 1, Saturday: Pick up rental first thing - visit Civita di Bagnoregio before heading to Spello....must arrive in Spello by 4 pm. Missed Civita on a previous trip and would like to visit on this one. Would love to stop in Todi but feel it may be too rushed. Thoughts?

Day 2, Sunday: Piano Grande loop, visit Norcia and Norcineria Ercole Ulivucci for salami... lunch in Taverna Castelluccio, back to Spello via Visso - with lots of goodies in hand! This will be our longest drive of the week.

Day 3, Monday: Perugia (thinking of taking the train so we don't have hassles with traffic or parking and giving the driver a break)

Day 4, Tuesday: Spoleto - maybe stop in Trevi on the way back if time permits, perhaps dinner in Trevi?

Day 5, Wednesday: Simply Spello, This is market day in Spello. We'll just spend the day exploring the nooks and crannies of this Umbrian village....pick up lunch from the market, enjoy some vino at an outdoor cafe and just savour the fact we're in Italy.

Day 6, Thursday: Bevagna and Montefalco, ending in Foligno around 5 pm for the Primi d'Italia pasta festival.

Day 7, Friday: ? Depending on the weeks weather this could be a catch-up day...if the stars were aligned for the week perhaps Todi and Monte Castello di Vibio - maybe a return to Assisi (we didn't forget about Assisi - visited on a previous trip) Also thought about Gubbio - not sure about the drive, however.

Day 8, Saturday: Drop rental in Foligno, train to Rome

Thoughts please...
