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

Beautiful and a bit awesome given its height, age and history but an absolute must to cross even if to take one of the walks.

We enjoyed new year in Spoleto and found the Aquaduct and Rocca to be an amazing hidden treasure towering over the town...the Rocca lit up with fireworks it was amazing. 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.
