天羽博士Located in Umbria, Italy, a small hilltop town with only 8,000 inhabitants. It was built in ancient Rome. Medieval-style castles, churches, and towers are laid out on the hillside. On the ancient bluestone slab, flowers followed suit.
Spello, nestled on the southern flank of Mount Subasio, between Assisi and Foligno, is part of the club of "The Most Beautiful Villages of Italy" due to its significant environmental, cultural and artistic heritage. The ancient town centre of Umbrian origin, "Hispellum" from the first century BC, was an important Roman town given the title " Splendidissima Colonia Julia". There is important and impressive evidence of the Roman period which coexists beautifully with today's medieval urban appearance. The itinerary for your visit starts in the lower part of the town. You will enter into the heart of the town through the monumental Consular gate (first century BC), given this name because it marked the entrance to the city from Via Flaminia; follow what was once the route of the old uphill road and let yourself be captivated by the coexistence of isolated Roman structures, to your right, and the medieval urbanization that you can admire on the left; continue until you get to the open space that houses the church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
Get lost in the narrow medieval streets adorned with colourful flower-filled balconies, which, on the day of Corpus Christi, are joined by precious carpets of flowers, for the famous Flower Festival of Spello; authentic works of sacred art made with flower petals. Visit the ancient Villa dei Mosaici museum, a Roman villa in the Sant'Anna area, where you can see 360 square metres of mosaic floors that have recently been restored and are dated between the third and early fourth century AC. If you still have some time left we recommend a walk in the gardens of Villa Fidelia park, or a little relaxation in the Spello Franciscan Spa, where you can enjoy the benefits of the sulphur waters that flow in the plain below.

Embrace the season of flowers in Spello, the "Flower Town" in Central Italy!
Familiar with Serie A is no stranger to Perugia, but in the province of Perugia, there is also a well-known flower town Spello. The town is on one side of the hill. The houses in the town are made of stone. Unlike the grayish stones of other towns, the stones are slightly yellow with a distinct medieval style.
For the name of the flower town, spello can be really unambiguous. In front of every household, they are carefully decorated with small flower pots. There is no shortage of flowers all year round. Every year, the town also has the tradition of selecting the best flower arrangement, which reminds me of the courtyard festival in Cordoba, Spain. In the arrangement of flowers, the Italians can not lose the Spaniards of the Spanish, and directly put the flowers on the door, on the wall, and even on the trails.
If you don't have time to go to Sicily for a rug of flowers, it's really recommended to go to Spello for a day, the town is quiet and hospitable, because it is not a traditional place to travel, compared to the adjacent holy city of Assisi, Basically invisible to the people. The pace of life here is slow, and we may not want to leave if we come to live in the metropolis.
