Castel dell'Ovo in Naples, fortress & former royal residence

Spoleto moves you up to the top of the city    Medieval  history and Festival dei Due Mondi

Spoleto, Umbria/Italy (2018)  As soon as you see Spoleto from the distance you just know it's going to be a lot of steps again, walking up and down to see the treasures of yet another picture perfect Umbrian ancient hilltop town. A kingdom for an escalator was my first thought when I arrived at the parking and believe it or not, right behind the corner, boom, there it was, an escalator. Never ever had a town made me smile more and fall in love with it even before I had started to visit and seen anything. And the new found convenience did not end there. The escalator took me up to a long tunnel with a moving walkway system, like the ones you find on airports and which you can exit on different levels of the mountain. Without even moving a toe and not losing a drop of sweat I reached the city on the top of the hill.  How pleasant is that? 

Spoleto is one of Umbrias medieval towns which one just has to see when visiting this central Italian region. Well, not for the escalators or moving walkways but for all it's beautiful sights, the huge castle on top of the hill, called "The Rocca Albornoziana", a 14th-century former papal fortress for example. Or the Spoleto Cathedral, constructed during the 12th-century, the Roman theater, first built in the 1st-century BC with the National Archaeology Museum, the Arch of Drusus and the Ponte delle Torri, the Bridge of Towers, a medieval arched bridge spanning a gorge, constructed in the 14th century. And there is so much more to see besides the lovely town with all the restaurants, bars and shops. Famous is Spoleto also for its summer music, opera and art festival, the "Festival of the Two Worlds" ("Festival dei Due Mondi") which takes place every year between June and July since 60 years and is one of Umbrias oldest and most important festivals. Goal of the festival is to bring the two cultures and artistic worlds of Europe and America together. Musicians and artists from around the world, the young as well as the famous ones, all meet up for this event in Spoleto.
