Great views of Umbria
May 2019 • Couples
Spello is an absolute joy. We loved walking around it. There are Roman arches and walls that are a constant reminder of the town's great history and the current citizens' pride in their past. The Piazza della Republica is one example of this and provides great views of the Umbrian countryside from its elevated position.

This is the main piazza in the historic city of Spello. Meet people, have a coffee and enjoy the shops.

Large open public space
Apr 2018 • Couples
Piazza della Repubblica is a large open public square where the Town Hall is situated, it could be considered to be the mid-way point from top to bottom of the town. On the afternoon of our visit the piazza was in full sun with people milling about. On the edge of the piazza I recall a couple of cafes.

Has to be one of the least attractive piazzas in Italy.
Jun 2017 • Couples
I'm afraid I must disagree with most British reviewers and go along with some of my Italian friends when I say that this is a pretty poor effort of a Piazza. There is no doubt that Spello is an attractive town with lots of old and characterful buildings, which makes it so much of a mystery as to why the central Piazza ended up with such horrid buildings as the post office and police office. They are like something you'd find in Coventry or Milton Keynes in the 1970s!

Like all the piazza's in Perugia, the Piazza della Repubblica always seems to have something going on. From market stalls to merry-go-rounds. It's a great place to have a coffee or glass of wine at one of the local cafes and just sit.

Lots of Construction, but still nice
Jun 2016 • Friends
Spello is one of the few Umbrian hilltop towns where you can easily take the train right up to the beginning of the town. From the station, it's an easy 5-10 minute walk.

Once you get there, be aware that - as of about a month ago - the main part of town was completely dug up. It looked like they were laying new water or sewer pipes, so you end up walking through town over a whole series of catwalk-like things. Didn't hear how long it would be until construction finished.

There are still flowers everywhere, and the tourist office is very helpful about telling you where the majority of the decorated houses are.

Spello is so beautiful
Jun 2016 • Couples
The main square, but also all the little medieval alleys leading up through the town are well worth a visit. We have now been there several time, showing guests around, and are never tired of it.... although the steep streets ARE somewhat tiring, admittedly.

Beautiful piazza in a beautiful town
Sep 2015
This review is as much a review of Spello as it is of the piazza, because all of the town is equally lovely.

We visited many towns in Umbria (and some in Tuscany), and Spello was the group's favorite for the combination of beauty, beautiful views, and blessedly few tourists. The residents and proprietors must take great pride in their community. Everything is clean. Many residences have flowers around entries and windows. Spello lacks the great art of some other communities (like Assisi), but all in all, one of the nicest strolls.

An added bonus is the opportunity to visit the tiny but lovely (with magnificent views) town of Coppolino, which is above Spello. Maps suggest a walk. Unless one is physically fit or young, we recommend driving.

One of the least touristy piazzas we visited
Jun 2015 • Family
We visited several perched villages throughout Umbria and loved every single one for various reasons. Spello was the most laid back and least crowded. In this piazza, many locals appeared to be relaxing in the shade of trees, and we found a little park around the corner without anyone else there. Loved all the flowers in Spello; the people here seem to really take pride in their little village.
