TAXI SERVICE (for short or long-distance trips)
The Tourist Information Bureau can give you bus and train timetables (they commonly run out of printed ones but are happy to photocopy the necessary pages for you). Buses run circular routes round the town. You buy tickets any newsagent’s stand (we recommend you buy a few as drivers do not like taking cash on buses) and punch them when you get on the bus. Once punched you can travel on that ticket for one hour but thereafter need another ticket. All the local buses go to the main station where you can get the regional buses to other towns.
CAR HIRE IN SPOLETO
CAR HIRE OUTSIDE OF SPOLETO
You may get a better deal re Spoleto or anywhere in Italy if you click on :
Another interesting website that I've seen with apparently good deals is :
Or, try www.Carhire3000.com , whom I believe offer competitive deals.
Please note that if you do decide to hire at this end rather than Rome or any of the other airports, then, if you hire from anywhere other than Spoleto, it could be difficult tracking down the car-hire office and costly if you need to hire a cab to help you find it. So, if you're hiring from this end, please hire in Spoleto as advised above.
SPOLETO TOURIST OFFICE
If you want any general information, the number of the Spoleto tourist office is (0039) 0743 218 620/1- the persons to speak to are Max or Cyncia, both of whom speak perfect English and who are usually very helpful.
A very convenient airport to travel to, apart from Rome, is Ancona - it takes 90 minutes to drive to Spoleto from there - rather less by train, I would imagine. Also, Perugia airport is about 30 mins away.
