We arrived when they opened the new travellator which allows access to the Rocca for people of all ages..there is also older escalators. However we found the walk up through... More

Walking across this unbelievable monument of the past is absolutely a rush. With no guard rails or wire for safety when you look over the edge the height is truly a rush. We did the 4 klm circle walk through the forest and found it fabulous. Throughout the entire walk several locations on the path have wooden work out stations... More

We walked from one of the car-parks (near the escalator) up a windy path through the trees and then over this beautiful old aqueduct, with lovely views below. There's road access on both sides of the bridge, but personally I think this 30 to 45 min walk is the best way to see the Ponte delle Torri.

Amazing views, real surprise that you could walk across to the other side. It looks as though there are some great walks over there too.

The Ponte delle Torri is iconic for Spoleto. It, along with the main cathedral, are the most photographed sights in Spoleto, and in the top 20 for southern Umbria. Pictures don't do it justice, though. Seeing it from the circular trail that surrounds the hill below the fortress (La Rocca), or walking across it are the best ways to exerience... More

This is a path! No railway bridge. Quite spooky to walk even now but better than the journey down and up the valley. They really looked after those popes.

The view to the castle from the bridge is WOW. Cross the bridge to reach the trail climbing up to the monastery. Great short trail

This bridge was one of the main attractions for my wife and I when we came to Spoleto in 2012. We had spent a couple of hours at the Rocca before moving on to the bridge. You need to do quite a bit of walking to get around Spoleto and the hike up to the Rocca and Ponte delle Torri... More
