Accommodations are tight during the Spoleto Festival (reserve by Mar), so here are a few places to try in addition to the choices listed if you have trouble finding a room. The Hotel dei Duchi, Viale G. Matteotti 4 (; tel. 0743-44-541; fax 0743-44-543), has 49 modern rooms in a bland 1959 brick building just south of Piazza Libertà, but the rooms are spacious, the views are spectacular and all the amenities are included (including free Wi-Fi). Online rates range from 75€ to 100€ per double. Cheaper and simpler are the six spacious doubles above the restaurant (under separate ownership) Il Panciolle, Via del Duomo 3-7 (; tel./fax 0743-45-677). They have tiled floors, soft beds, clean bathrooms, TVs, phones, Wi-Fi and minibars, and cost 45 to 85€. One of the most appealing options outside town is the Le Logge di Silvignano, Frazione Silvignano 14 (; tel. 0743-274-098), a gorgeous palace complex in the hills southeast of Spoleto. Rentals are usually by the week only, starting at 500€ to 700€ for a two-person suite.
