The drive was long to Spello. There is not much to see, very few shops, but we were allowed into this museum. Unfortunately we only saw photos and a video - nothing up close and personal. We were not there for the festival, so our visit was a disappointment to all 10 of us. Make sure you go when the... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to be in the Spello area in 1998 at the time of the Infiorate di Spello so we were able to witness both the preparation and the procession the next morning. That visit to the festival was not planned but for the past 18 years we have been determined to return to Spello... More

If you find yourself in Umbria at the end of May, you simply must visit the Infiorate in Spello. I am fortunate to have good friends who allowed me to participate in the festival this year and it was an experience I will cherish forever. The teams who design and create these works of art begin the process of planning,... More

Our visit to Spello was prompted by online pictures we saw of the Infiorate - and we weren't disappointed. The whole experience was wonderful, far exceeding our expectations. It's impossible to describe the beautiful carpets of flowers, welcoming locals and the atmosphere in this lovely medieval town. We were lucky enough to be involved with the preparations of the flowers... More

The infiorata in Spello is one of the 'must-see' events in Umbria. We visited last year and were amazed at the level of beauty people here create with only flower petals. All streets are lined with mosaics. Also very worthy mentioning is the local match between home owners in decorating their houses with flowers. Where the Infiorata is only a... More

Procession starts at 10 and the place is pretty packed by 9:00. 7 to 9 is the best time to view the displays, then find a vantage point for the parade..

We went to Spello the Saturday before Corpus Domini to see the town "pre-L'Inforiata" and it was really charming. Groups of neighbors of all ages sitting together painstakingly cutting or plucking flower petals in preparation for the night's work to create the displays on the sidewalks. People were so friendly and it was interesting to see the process. It was... More

What an amazing event! We came to see this incredible event because I just couldn't imagine it. The whole town of Spello is involved in crafting these giant masterpieces on the streets out of flower petals and fruit. Plus you get an "up-close and personal experience" with these incredible works of art. Wow!!

I unfortunately was premature in my arrival to experience the infiorate, but went to the museum in central Spello (hard to get lost there!), and was amazed by the video and photos of the event. If you are not there during the festivities, I suggest you go to the museum and experience it that way! Simply amazing!

Just impressive. All these local people that work all night long to recreate and reproduce perfect copies of the most impressive art pieces using just and only flower petals. Spello is famous and breath taking for many reasons but the Infiorata is the #1 attraction and I suggest to all world to go and enjoy.
