If you're in Spoleto, you can't miss this monumental walking bridge. It takes you from Spoleto to the opposite hill, Monteluco. It is my favorite thing to do in Spoleto. The Forest has been protected and held sacred since the Romans were here. There are many paths throughout - hermits, Frances (St.), Michelangelo, and other artists, and poets, took refuge... More

A wonderful walk on the aqueduct can make your day! It overlooks a beautiful valley area and is also at the bottom of a small mountain. After you cross you will find multiple walking trails that aren't too difficult.

This is such an impressive structure and will take your breath away when you see how tall and how elegant it is stretching across the chasm below. Make sure you continue on the other side to the Giro dei Condotti as you will get superb views looking back on the Ponte delle Torri and la Rocca.

Very impressive roman structure and breath taking views provided by the trail on the opposite side of the fortress. Also, the down has built an underground escalator (people mover) to make it easy to get to from the low part of town. This is a welcome refuge from the heat, as it is air conditioned.

Really impressive! This is the kind of geat things that are not so known to turist! Not only beautiful, but also amazing example of civil engineering and architeture. This, along the gorgous town is a really good way to spend 2 o 3 relaxing hours in Spoleto!

I wish we'd walked across and hiked beyond, but we stopped our walk at the Rocca Albornoziana fortress, built in 1359–1370. Ponte delle Torr is elegant at a distance, though. I'd assumed it was a Roman aqueduct, but that's apparently in contention. Doesn't matter to its beauty.

Had a walk over the bridge. Great views of the area and some walks in the woods on the other side for the more energetic.

When exploring the village you might as well head around the back of the castle to see the bridge, some nice views to be seen
