Friends of mine recently bought a weekend place in Spoleto and invited me up for a day. It’s about forty miles south east of Perugia.
It was my first trip to Spoleto and I highly recommend a visit. The Historic Center is very charming with incredible views. I took a lot of photos. Below are a few.
Ponte delle Torri – a 13th century aqueduct.
One of the highlights for me. Next time I will bring a pair of sneakers or hiking shoes so I could walk further up the trail.
The Duomo – Santa Maria Assunta
More pictures of the Historic Center.
Basilica di Santa Gregorio Maggiore – consecrated in 1146.
Note: This is not a politics blog but the US election last week was not normal.
The President Elect would like to commute to the White House, staying mostly in Trump Tower. I was not aware that being President of the most powerful country on the planet was a part-time gig. This would create a major logistical nightmare for the Secret Service and the NYPD. It would also be a headache for residents of the building and the surrounding area as blocks of a major street (5th Avenue) would have to be shut down.
There’s a silver lining. Trump may not have time or the desire to redecorate the White House. I was thinking of writing a separate post about this space:
