Spoleto is really a small city and all the parking areas were full. We decided not to try and find a parking area outside of the center and walk around as there was a constant drizzle of rain that would increase in intensity from time to time as rain squalls passed through. Michiyo was driving and all those years of driving in Japan paid off as there were many narrow one way roads, sometimes the road was really an old alley not much wider than the car itself! There was no parking in the center so we tried to find the Ponte delle Torri a 14th Century aqueduct.
After seeing the aqueduct we had a choice. It was getting later in the afternoon and either we could stay in Spoleto or continue on to Lake Trasimeno. We had packed swimming trunks that morning but the storm meant that swimming probably would not be on the agenda but we still wanted to see the lake. Just like in Spello we missed seeing some good sights and hopefully we will be able to return some day and give Spoleto its due.
