In fact, its relatively low number of visitors is a large part of its appeal, as tourists mingle in its streets with locals; galleries and craft shops jostle side by side with those selling everyday local produce; and tables in restaurants are easily come by.
For me the main pleasures here were simply strolling the streets and observing daily life on them; peering down the characteristic winding alleys and admiring the colourful flowers; relaxing over a leisurely lunch with friends and later with a delicious gelato; and admiring the wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.
But there a few specific sights to look out for too – enough to make you feel you have “done” Spello, but not so many as to make that doing into a chore. A church with marvellous Renaissance frescoes; an arch left over from Roman times; medieval walls and towers built on still-evident Roman foundations.
It is hard to imagine anywhere could more concisely capture the charms of Italy than does Spello, in fact.
