Usually, if any UNESCO site exists in the city, tourists will know about it immediately at the station. The signs will show us how to get to this attraction. Everything is different in Spoleto. We'd realize about it, if we don't read about it before....More

We took the walk up to Basilica di San Salvatore and walked the grounds. It is a beautiful structure. It is the oldest church in Spoleto. The doors and windows are very ornate and historic.

This is history brought to life. According to nowadays standards it is sort of bare but when time and conditions are taken into account it makes a Lot of sense. Well worth a visit.

Spoleto is an enchanting walled city full of attractions within the walls -- but do NOT miss the highly important (and UNESCO designated World Heritage site) outside the walls. Thankfully, almost nothing was done to "improve" the church over the centuries and it is possible...More

The Basilica di San Salvatore, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a humbling and awe-inspiring work of art, a quiet and reverential structure that holds within it a sense of what the earliest Christian sanctuaries were like. There are here Roman temple architectural influences and...More

A bit difficult to access outside Spoleto and hidden behind the cemetary lies this nice church with an interesting combination of architectural styles. The view of Spoleto and the fortress is very nice from the adjacent olive plantageon.

The Basilica of San Salvatore is just a 6-minute walk from the bottom of the set of escalators that lead down from Spoleto's Duomo and Ponzianina areas. Considered to be one of Italy's oldest churches, it was built using Roman salvaged remains. This is apparent...More

This is one of the best examples of early archeology of any church or basilica and is wonderful. Be careful of opening hours though as we had to return
