The bridge/acueduct is living history. Stop mid-span at night to gaze down at the lights of the basso and up to the moon and stars. During the day, the view from the bridge is spectacular. Cross over to the mountain and wander the steep hillside trails or hike up to Monteluco, St. Francis' sacred retreat.

Italy is so often churches and monuments it is nice to find something that is both cultural and fun. An old aqueduct spanning a gorge. This was fun to walk across, look at the views, take photos and being asked by strangers to take their photos. The kids loved the birds swooping above us to plunge into he gorge. It... More

If you're in Spoleto for a visit, you'd probably have to actively try if you wanted to miss the Ponte delle Torri. It's a great walk with expansive vistas, and provides easy access to an extensive network of hiking trails in the area. It's worth the brief walk across and back even if you aren't going hiking, and as others... More

This aqueduct is in great shape given it's age. You can walk across it and see the natural spring water still running today. We topped up our water bottle and it was cold and clean!

Taking the path through the woods from Monteluco to the bridge gives a fantastic perspective as you enter Spoleto. What a shame about the graffiti!!

It was a very pleasant walk from our hotel past the fort to this ancient aquaduct and to return by another route above the river. It was even better being able to walk across its length over this deep gorge.

The old bridge crosses the river with magnificent views and serves as an entry pont for an easy but lovely walk along the edge of the gorge.

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).
