The Ponte delle Torre connects the town of Spoleto with Monteluco, a mountain green space with wonderful hikes and walks. The bridge is 230m in length and 80m high. It consists of six gothic arches and is built on top of a Roman aqueduct, that serves as its foundation. The bridge itself can be accessed from the Via del Ponte,... More

Just before entering Spoleto, you have to turn right onto a small road that will lead you to the Tower Bridge. The view is breathtaking, you can't get enough of it. It is also the best place to take pictures in this gorgeous place. The parking space is not big, and during the weekends it's a very busy spot.

The tallest stone bridge in Europe is worth seeing, and no climb required as escalators take you up to its level! Circle the base of the Rocca to get to the aqueduct, then back around to views of the town. Or better yet, cross the aqueduct bridge and take the steep but rewarding hike (marked trails, follow red and white... More

Walking across the bridge you feel that you are living in the Middle Ages in Italy. The scenery is beautiful and it's a great walk around the Rocca

While planning our trip to Spoleto, we saw pictures of the ponte a hundred times. Of course it was the first thing we went to see when we got settled in to our apartment. It's a relatively easy walk from the old town and truly is a site to see. We went at sunrise, sunset, and at night when the... More

The Ponte delle Torri is an architectural wonder. It is an excellent place for picture taking, pondering, or starting a hike. It is beautiful at night, as it is lit up and can be seen from various parts of Spoleto.

This bridge is accessible from both sides and much easier to reach from the side away from Spoleta. Even if you have issues with heights, this bridge is wide enough and with a solid, waist high wall, that it's possible to not realize that you are so far above the ravine. We walked across and into the top of the... More
