justburg...the Spello train station is quite removed from the old town...as I mentioned it in the old part of town so I would say an approx walk of 2 miles in...and up into town. I could be done but it would not be my choice for convenience. Some train stations are unmanned and you would need to purchase your ticket on board the train or if they have a machine...I thought Spello was one of these stations.

Assisi's train station is also outside of town but there is at least bus connections. Perugia might be a good choice as well since you could take both bus or train.

Again...you could do Spello but I don't think it would be very convenient without a call.

OK I'm putting my two cents in. We drove through Foligno several times when we stayed in Trevi. Maybe we missed something, but it was a bland, charmless town from what we could see, with traffic. Not like most of the rest of the area.

Justbug, I do not think there are direct trains from Assisi to Spello - you have to change at Foligno and you can waste a lot of time waiting for a connecting train. We did it once from Assisi and I was really frustrated - wished I had a car.

My vote also goes for Assisi because I love the town so much. And if you get bored you can easily visit Perugia - trains running directly and frequently between Assisi and Perugia.
