Various signs and travel guides may create an impression that Rocca Albornoziana and National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto are two different things. In reality, the Museum is an integral part of the fortress. The fortress houses the Museum; the latter makes the Rocca much more interesting. My strong recommendation, do not hesitate to spend extra €1.50 to buy the "biglietto integrato" which give you access to museum area located on the first and second floors around the Ward of Honor of the Rocca.

On this page I am going to tell you about two restaurants in Spoleto (Italy) you may keep in mind when visiting this ancient Italian city. One of them is Ristorante il Tartufo (piazza Garibaldi, 24, 06049 Spoleto, Italy). The second is Osteria Del Trivio (via del Trivio, 16, 06049 Spoleto, Italy). Both restaurants are located close to each other; both locations are convenient for those who visit Spoleto historic center; both are specializing in traditional local cuisine. But similarities stop here.

The mosaic floors and its design indicate that the house was built at the beginning of the 1st century AD.
