Geographic position

The Palazzetto di Porta Venere is located in Spello, a charming medieval town among the most beautiful in Italy, nestled on the slopes of Mount Subasio, between Assisi and Foligno.

Nestled in the exceptional naturalistic setting of the Mount Subasio Park, in the green heart of Umbria, Spello is a town on a human scale, ideal for living or as a base for visiting the art cities of Umbria and central Italy: it is 10 minutes from Assisi (13 km) and about half an hour from Spoleto (34 km) and Perugia (30).

Spello is perfectly connected to the main road system, with access to the superhighway just 5 minutes from the palazzetto, making it possible to reach both Rome (160 km) and Florence (174 km) in less than two hours.

In addition, thanks to the Foligno-Civitanova Marche supestrada, the Adriatic Sea with its beaches is only an hour's drive away.


The connection to Perugia S. Egidio International Airport (22 km), just a 20-minute drive away, is also excellent, while the airports of Rome Ciampino (176 km) and Rome Fiumicino (193 km) can be reached in just over two hours.
