Spoleto has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The first evidence of settlements dating back to the Bronze Age. It is full of important monuments and archaeological remains of seven eras that show the important role in the history since the Roman period. The recent restoration of the entire Albornoz fortress with the new Civic Museum make this city an important center of art. Umbria itself is a region with unspoiled landscapes, interesting towns full of art, green hills where everything speaks of a past rich in history. You walk in the small streets immersing yourselves in the Middle Ages.
It is also very interesting for its cuisine. His truffles and “strangozzi” (a special home made pasta) are really unforgettable, and of course for its famous wines (Sagrantino), winners of international awards for several years.
Many events and festivals are held throughout the year. More important are Festival of 2 Worlds (http://www.festivaldispoleto.com/) (mid-June-mid-July) this for 70 years, an opportunity to discover world-famous artists who engage in various arts, including drama, dance, music, theater, painting, the local Spoletino August (August), a month of shows in the streets, in the shops, in different theater with music, art exhibitions, the International festival of Opera Exhibition (http: // www .tls-belli.it / eng / news .php) (September) where new opera singers make their debut in a real work of theater, the Center of International Study of the High Middle Ages, (http: // www .cisam.org /) and Umbria Jazz Festival (http: //www.umbriajazz. com /) (July) in the nearby town of Perugia.
