First time mentioned in 241 BC by the name of Spoletum, the town was an important settlement in the times of Roman Empire. Unsurprisingly, many of ancient building that draw visitors nowadays, have a respectful age of two thousand years. There is also a majestic fortress overlooking the town from the top of the hill, several nice palaces and churches - one of which, the basilica of San Salvatore was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. Since 1958, world famous Festival dei Due Mondi takes place every June. Concept of the festival is to have the worlds of American and European culture facing each other - so, there's a twin festival occurring in Charleston, South Carolina, USA, since 1977. Spoleto is a convenient day trip from Rome.
