It requires a little bit effort by feet to reach, but it's very particular and interesting to see; you can reach it from the "Rocca" monument (100-200 mt. distance)

In November, the atmosphere surrounding this place is enchanting especially at surrounding sunset; nice to walk the bridge on the sideway

This fantastic Old bridge from XIII century)is actually a sign of a great aqueduct from Rome that served as the basis for its foundation. It rises to 80 meters, that is why you can get amazing views from the top, especially for taking pictures in the sunset. It is located in the city of Spoleto (40 miles from Perugia).

A great way to spend 1-2 hours. The bridge is fun to cross and the reward on the other side is an abandoned fort where you can go explore. The bridge and fort provide a stunning view of the countryside and of the town of Spoleto.

Do not miss this site. Walk across it. Try to see it at sunset, with the light streaming underneath and through the arches: spectacular.

We walked here today. It was a lovely, short walk from the Piazza Liberta. You can walk across this beautiful bridge and there are trails on the other side that offer wonderful views. One trail takes you to Monteluco. The forested trails are uneven surfaces so wear goid shoes.

This was a fun walk to do after touring the castle. It's amazing what they were able to do so many years ago. We had a glorious day so obviously he views were wonderful. Still a marvel to experience.

I had no idea this was there and discovered it only because I was walking around the circular pathway it is accessed from. Stunning to see, frightening to think of how narrow it looks I did think initially it was just a very high wall put there for some reason. It was only as I came abreast of the pathway... More

Great ancient bridge with a great view of the surrounding areas. Make sure you walk all the way across and up the hill on the other side. Amazing to walk across something so old. Only issue was the tourist groups arriving and destroying the serenity.
