The city's tourism web page seems informative but it is only in Italian. To find information isn't that hard, even for an English speaker, for instance Mappa della Citta was easy for me to find in order to get the name of the gate we parked by.
We walked along the walls to the Porta Consolare. We were hungry and were lucky to find the Ristorante Pizzeria Il Frantoio.
I really wanted to explore this town but it was obvious a downpour was coming. Instead of going back out through the gate we walked inside the south wall and came out by the Porta Venere. The rain hit just as soon as we got into the car and we were soon on our way to Spoleto.
I regret not being able to wander through Spello. It is smaller than Gubbio and it would have only taken 2 hours to leisurely explore the whole town. I hope to return someday.
