The Olive Groves of the Slopes Assisi-Spoleto, a world heritage.
Strolling along Spello
Scents and flavor in Spello
But even just a stroll through the cobbled streets can be a unique and multi-sensory experience. The flowers decorate every corner of the old city. Between May and June flowers invade the city thanks to the historic Infiorata of Corpus Domini, that transforms the streets of the medieval village into a spectacular carpet of flower petals that exceeds 1.5 km representing pictures of sacred scenes.
All around the city the scent of flowers merges with the one of food and — of course — oil, the lifeblood of this land and an essential element of every traditional dish of the city. In a restaurant located just outside the walls, called Il Vecchio Opificio, you can still experience the authentic flavors of the area, thanks to dishes like the Cicerchie pureed soup, made with the oldest legumes ever cultivated by man, pasta with truffles, other precious fruit of this land, and escargots with tomato sauce. Anyway, you can visit Spello for a short walk or you can stay longer, but this village and its silhouette, lying round on the hill, will hardly be erased from your memory.
