Visitors to Spoleto will find it hard to forget historical and artistic sites which are some of the regions most majestic such as the Bridge of Towers (Ponte delle Torri) which links Spoleto with the mountain, a construction more than 200meters long for a height of 80 meters; the Church of St Pietro, with its 13th century facade, subject of numerous photos and postcards; then there is the Cathedral with its mosaics and the Church of St Eufemia.
In addition to these rare treasures one finds the Basilica of St Salvatore, the Church of St Gregorio Maggiore, the Roman bridge, the Church of St Domenico, the Church of St Ponziano, the Church of St Giuliano and the Convent of St Francis.
Visitors will be struck by the Medieval appearance of Spoleto which has remained practically unchanged by time, thanks to a long period of considerable wealth as the Ducato Longobardo and then as key city of the Papal state. The Festival dei due Mondi which, in the June and July period, transforms Spoleto in to the world Capital of prose, music and dance is not to be missed.
