Almost 10 minutes by car from Spello, this tiny village is really one of a kind. A gem hidden between mountains and nature.

Reward at the end of a wonderful walk
May 2019 • Couples
We walked to Collepino along the Acquedotto Romano from Spello, a distance of about 6kms (12kms return). The track is wonderful and not too difficult, slightly downhill on the way back. Collepino is said to be 850m from the end of the acquedotto, but it seemed longer than that to us, up an extremely steep road. However, it was well worth the slog. There are two cafes in the little town. Allow 2 hours each way for the walk, at a comfortable pace.

So pleased to arrive in Collepino
Apr 2018 • Couples
It was such a relief to finally arrive in Collepino having hiked all the way from Spello along the Acquedotto Romano. This very cute and little village is located high on an Umbrian hill and easily accessed by car but there's no challenge in that for us. The entrance to the village was beautifully decorated with flowering pots and a large water trough with delicious cold drinking water. The village takes only a few minutes to wander, at the far side of the village is a viewing platform and a near-by cafe.

As the name suggests- the place seems like someone has cast a beautiful spell. The streets are so peaceful and colourful. I would recommend to take the tour of city on foot. And it looks beautiful at night too!

Little Italian gem
Jun 2017 • Couples
We visited Collepino several times in 2014 and again this year, whilst staying in nearby Spello. First discovered by my husband when cycling the back roads to Assisi. Flavio and his wife who run the bar are just delightful, friendly people and we looked forward to seeing them again next year. Collepino is a tiny hamlet, and often on our visits we would only see a few people, but were able to enjoy a coffee, snack or drink in the sunny small piazza outside the bar. Flavio who is into music often organises music events and this year we went to see a great band playing in the lower piazza of the village. A wonderful evening with the locals, including the Mayor of Spello, enjoying simple wine, food and great music!
The road into Collepino is certainly windy, but some great views of Spello and the valley below. You can also walk along the ancient Roman Aqueduct between Spello and Collepino. This is a lovely walk, not difficult, but can be rocky in places and quite steep on the Collepino side. Great views of the valley as you walk beside ancient ruins and in amongst the Olive groves. Whist we walked this track a few times in 2014, it was just too hot this year when visiting in June! We will try to complete the walk again next year.
Don't forget to continue on to the next even smaller village of San Giovanni. Like many of the small villages and hamlets of Umbria, you see very few people, however these places come alive during the summer festival season and a visit to any of these festivals is a wonderful experience. Watch out for posters advertising events in the larger hilltop towns. Our four month stay in Spello in 2014 was certainly enriched through these wonderful summer festival experiences. Unfortunately we only had 3 weeks this year and so were only able to attend a couple of local events!

This place is so tiny and quiet with the most amazing view on the valley and St. Subasio National Park. We went there by car from Spello.

Beautiful, quiet
Sep 2016 • Couples
Best way to get here is by foot if you can. We came on a walk over the hills behind the village and as you descend the steep road through the woods the village on its little hilltop suddenly appears. (If you do go by road there is a small car park on the edge of the village.)
It is very picturesque with little, winding streets and beautiful, old houses. Not big butlers into a small square with a very good, little cafe serving drinks, food etc on a terrace. Next to this is a viewing terrace offering beautiful views into the valley with woods, olive groves etc.
Very much recommended for a short stay.

cute, tiny, with marvelous views
May 2016 • Couples
Collepino is in the hills above Spello - quite a winding road to get there. Only 20 people, 1 dog, and 1 cat reside in this little gem of a town. One of the 20, Flavio, along with his wife, owns a bar where you can get coffee, wine/beer, and small plates to enjoy. He is a music lover - rock and blues - which is evidenced by his décor. On occasion he brings in one-man music acts. He is warm and friendly and his bar is definitely worth a stop. There is also a restaurant in town but the hours and dates of operation are erratic so don't absolutely count on eating there....even on days when it is supposed to be open.

Walking around Collepino is a treat - it is tiny and well-kept. Stroll along the outside walls for terrific views of the Umbrian Valley below. Very quiet during the week, with more life on weekends, when there are more visitors to the town.

A must do when in Spello for a few days
Jul 2014 • Couples
If you go to Collepino... You should go by foot from Spello . The trail starts on the north side of spello and there is sufficient parking space. The trail brings you along the roman aqueduct in about 1h30 to collepino. We are not that much into walking but we will start to do it more after this tour. It is simply super! The best views in umbria. Along the way you also have some fountains for water. The last part to collepino is quite steep. But the village of collepino is so nice... Time stood still there. It takes you 15 minutes to do the tour of the village but it is so authentic... Simply divine. There is a bar and a restaurant. We had one of our nices days of holidays doing this tour. Highly recommended
