Luxury apartment, sleeps 6
The cool, contemporary interior of this stunningly, beautiful apartment belies the antiquity of the grand palazzo that houses it. Opening onto views of Il Duomo, La Rocca, the roof-tops of mediaeval Spoleto and the mountains and valleys beyond, this is a million dollar location ! We receive nearly as many offers to buy this sensational apartment as we do to rent it. However, please note that this apartment is priceless and, for the foreseeable future, it is not for sale !
It has 2 totally private, double or twin bedrooms, one ensuite. And, on a mezzanine floor, there is a 3rd bedroom/study area, on which there are twin beds that can be joined. While the mezzanine bedroom is not totally private, the interior of the room cannot be seen from below.
The very large and spacious sitting/dining room has dining and seating for up to 6 persons. The 2nd bathroom is off the dining area. The 2nd bedroom is off the sitting room area.
In what many of the up-market Spoletini regard as the posh end of Spoleto, Terrazza Duomo is just 2 minutes walk from Piazza Mercato and 5 minutes walk from Piazza Liberta. Here, there is the tourist office, opposite the ancient Roman Forum, where plays, theatre and dance are still performed. Nonetheless, the cages that once restrained the lions from devouring the Christians, until the audiences arrived, remain intact.
While Terrazza Duomo is not on the main drag and, consequently, not in the hubbub of city life, it is within a few minutes radius, in any direction, of plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. The main “action” takes place in “down town” Spoleto, a 10 minutes, inspiringly beautiful, downhill stroll. Then, rather than walk back uphill, you can take the escalator, a 10 minutes pleasure ride that takes you upwards and above the roof-tops, on a covered but open moving staircase, which delivers you finally to just above Terrazza Duomo, at the entrance to the Rocca.
And, you are a mere 5 minutes walk from the very top of Spoleto, where, crossing Il Ponte, the splendid Roman aquaduct, you find yourself in the Sacred Mountains, where there are a myriad of marked paths, following in the footsteps of St Francis and his pilgrims.
