This is one of the places where you understand how Italian Renaissance artists, even Leonardo, took their inspiration for the rocky backgrounds of some of their Madonnas. The scenery is romantic, just under Spoleto's castle (the Rocca, high up and dramatic), and it's a marvelous walk. Go walking in the afternoon, cross the Ponte delle torri, have a walk (long,...

The town has its own special atmosphere very quiet well kept and with the most amazing attraction the bridge. You can cross on the other side of the bridge and enjoy beautiful views.

Just an amazing aqueduct with great views around the area. Don't miss visiting the town as it makes a pleasant 2-3 hour wander. Have a coffee at the Bar La Portella which gives you great views down the valley. If you wander through the town you find the Roman amphitheatre remains.

It is not only the Aqueduct/Towers Bridge it is the escalator ride up there and the walk around the Castle that is even additionally amazing and enjoyable. I was aw struck by the views all along the walk way around the Castle, breathtaking and they would just keep coming with every 100 feet I walked. Thank you Spoleto for having... More

There are 2 sections, the lower and wider is for pedestrian. The upper appears so narrow that I think it must have been an aqueduct of sorts. Grass and wild plants are grown on it now. I did not have time to walk on it, as there isn't a destination to go . But it looks very attractive indeed. There... More

We loved exploring this medieval bridge and aqueduct and the views of valley are stunning! We enjoyed getting off the beaten path and spending time on the hiking trails just off the bridge. It was a beautiful ending to a wonderful time in Spoleto.

I've seen a lot of picture of this bridge crossing the valley from Spoleto to Montelucco. There's a walkway across the back which is not visible from most photos. It's a loooong way down from the center. Go to the middle and take some photos!!!

Absolutely amazing to be standing and walking on a structure so old. It is amazing to think it dates back over 2000 years.
