After the disappointment of Assisi, Sello restored my faith. This is a beautiful hill town with the main street seeming to go ever upwards. It's a place to wander and just enjoy being in Italy.

We just happened to spend the evening in Spello, on a drive back to our B&B in the Assisi area, and are so glad we did. In comparison with Assisi, Spello feels more like a real town where people live. And it's gorgeous. Drop-dead views...More

We stayed for two weeks, wished we could have stayed longer, and hope to return. There is much to see and do here, and Spello itself is very walkable. It is also a very good base from which to visit the whole area - Assisi,...More
