Spoleto

Maureen and I have been the first ones up every morning. She is another early riser, AND a coffee drinker, so Brad, Maureen and I went in to Bevagna at 7:30 for a couple of coffee drinks of choice. Coffee and breakfast begin at 9 at the inn, so I am drinking Pepsi to avoid a horrible headache before then.

Then we headed to Spoleto. The Spoleto Festival of the Worlds is going on in July, so several venues in town were set up for concerts of all types.

We saw an ancient Roman ampitheater.

We walked across an ancient bridge that is a miracle of engineering.

We saw Spoleto's beautiful duomo.

Spoleto has wonderful arches, and the Piazza Mercato.

We have enjoyed three mornings spent with our delightful tour guide, Maura. We hope to see her in California.

I know you're having a great time but I STILL can't believe that you can't get coffee before 9 a.m.!!!!

No coffee until 9? That is inhumane treatment! LOL

It sounds like you are all having the BEST time-I'm happy for you but I''m going crazy being here in San Diego (which is a beautiful place, but it's not Italy!).

sandrac:

Wonderful photos! Spoleto's Duomo really is remarkable. I'd like to visit it again, and to walk across that amazing Ponte dell Torri. It was closed when I was in Spoleto 2 years ago, but someday I'll return.

Loved seeing these photos! Brought back great memories of my visit back in 2000. I loved walking across that bridge. So cool!!! Great Duomo also!
