Postcard from Spello
Up we go, down we go, then up again, and then we discover Spello, the beautiful city we want to accompany you in with today's post. A post which is a little special, almost as a postcard that Luisa is virtually sending to all our Ddmag readers, to give us a glimpse of an ancient beauty.

Dearest readers,
please take a walk with me in Spello's alleys. Spello is a city that stands out in the Umbrian landscape, and ends sheltered on the slopes of Subasio Mountain. To welcome us in the city stands the 'Portonaccio', a gate from the 14th century that grants our entrance in the ancient village of Spello: alleys, towers, doors, and courtyards that offer us a very suggestive Roman and Medieval scenery. Time seems to have stopped and it is now set by another kind of clock: that of slow steps, of gazes directed to the sky and to flowery balconies, and of the taste for local products.
Have a look at the gallery and walk with me... a great beauty is waiting for you!


We send you lots of love and we wish you a pleasant journey,
