Boroth25, I stayed for several days (and nights!) in Spoleto and at the Palazzo Dragoni last year, and both have a lot going for them.

The palazzo was one of the most charming places I have ever stayed in, in Italy. Lovely, large rooms, really nicely appointed, with great views and perhaps the best breakfast I have ever had in Italy. Exceptional value. It doesn't have air conditioning, but surprisingly (given how hot and humid it was when I was there in June 2007) I didn't miss it. I would return there in a flash.

Spoleto has some beautiful sights, the Duomo is spectacular. However, one year ago, many buildings were undergoing restoration, so the town didn't appear to its best advantage. Still, it's worth seeing. And if you have a car, I think you would be well-positioned to visit a lot of other lovely hilltowns.

BTW, if you get a chance to read Michael Tucker's recent memoir "Living in A Foreign Language," it's a fun read and mostly set just outside Spoleto where Tucker and his wife (former TV stars from LA Law) bought a centuries' old house.
