Spoleto Adventures

June 17, 2014

On this day, we roadtripped back towards Rome to get us in the right direction to travel to Pompeii, Sorrento, and Capri. Yay!

But first, we decided to stop in a small town called Spoleto. Spoleto was similar to Assisi in that it was also situated on a hill. The fun part about it was that we reached it via at least five escalators. Those were a nice break from all the walking we'd been doing this trip.

We saw:

  • Cattedrale de Santa Maria Assunta 
  • Roman Theatre
  • Various other pretty buildings and streets
Most of our free time was spent wandering the streets of Spoleto, but we had the absolute best time at a cafe we found that overlooked the city. It was there that I discovered two things: one, I can order sparkling water in Italian (yay!) and two, I found the best gnocchi ever - gnocchi with boar sauce! (It sounds intimidating, but boar sauce is basically a sausage/red sauce.)

I also made friends with a cat. :)

Gelato was great in Spoleto, too. I ordered tiramisu and nutella gelato in a single cone, and it was amazing (and I ordered that in Italian, too!).

Next stop, the Campania region. Pompeii, Sorrento, and Capri await! :)
