This is a very large 1 bedroom apartment and, therefore, extra single beds can easily be erected in the spacious sitting room, unobtrusively, at 50 euros per person extra for a minimum of a week.
The rate includes a lift, free of charge, to and from the station (ie arrival and departure), if you are without a car. This offer is subject to Laurie, my husband being available and the car being OK. To date, we have always been able to provide this service !
Vista Rocca is located in Porta Fuga, one of Spoleto's oldest mediaeval streets. The whole area is pedestrian, having undergone much restoration in the last few years. So, it really is very beautiful, indeed.
With free WiFi internet access, Vista Rocca, a, spacious, elegant 1 bedroom apartment, is in the historic centre of Spoleto, buzzing with shops, bars and restaurants as well as ancient monuments, churches and museums at every twist and turn of Spoleto's arched and cobbled streets. The best location !
A car is NOT necessary as you are just 10 minutes walk from the train station and the bus terminus or a very short bus-ride. From the train station, you can get to practically anywhere in Italy. And, from the bus station, there are myriad of really interesting journeys you can take from little local rides around the hills, visiting a diversity of hill-top villages, to places as far afield as Castelluccio and Norcia - spectacular rides !
You can park nearby. Or, you can hire a single car secure garage space, next to the elevator, up to the apartment.
The weekly rate is 50 euros, or 8 euros/day, the rate we pay the owner of the tiny car-park.

The Umbria region
Vista Rocca (70 sq mts)is so-called because, while it doesn't have a terrace or balcony, it has 2 very large windows in its large sitting room with an amazing view that overlooks the intersection where the 2 mediaeval lanes, Corso Garibaldi and Porta Fuga, join up, then, sweeps along Corso Garibaldi, as it continues round a corner, then, up the hills to the Rocca perched on top – an incredibly stunning, and totally “steeped in history” view.
Indeed, we had an artist stay here for a month, who wished to visit as many of the Umbrian towns, cities and hill-top villages as she could in order to paint and sketch each of them. At the end of the month, she declared that she'd hardly been anywhere. She had been too gripped by the views immediately from the windows of Vista Rocca and had spent almost every day just painting and sketching the scenery she could see through the windows !
Vista Rocca was launched in latter 2006. Since the beginning, it has proved extremely popular and always becomes fully booked.
Vista Rocca is in the Rocca dei Perugini in the pedestrian, historic centre of Spoleto, a palazzo that we have deliberately invested in because of its magnificent location in Spoleto. However, there is more…………………………………
This very beautiful building, which houses some of the most important people of these parts.......judges, architects, a chief of police….. is of immense historical significance for Spoleto because, just after the turn of the century, the Perugini conquered Spoleto and built the now-named Rocca dei Perugini as a strong-hold to guard their position and reign over the Spoletini.
These were bloody times, indeed, for both the Spoletini and the Perugini because the Spoletini fought back by occupying the Torre Del'Olio just a few metres up the hill, a lane called Porta Fuga, and, there, they watched for the Perugini as they passed below, immediately dousing and killing them with burning oil. Just 2 years, and, many deaths by burning oil later, the Spoletini regained power in Spoleto and, ever since, Spoleto and Perugia have had an uneasy relationship.
