The tower bridge is an incredible construction, damaged by the earthquakes in Italy and now closed to foot traffic, though still open for viewing! View it from la Rocco or from the mountain opposite on the walk up to the convention of San Francesco.

Amazing construction, fascinating to see from la Rocca. Difficult to get to walks starting at the Torre on the other side of the valley, so starting with a long road walk.... unfortunately.

We had a hard time finding the best view of the bridge but found the best views from the fort. Incredible architecture and a very unique aqueduct. Worth the climb to get a view

The bridge crossing has been closed to the public. It is an amazing feat of engineering from Roman times.

I just love bridges that look like old Roman Aqueducts. And this certainly does. Straddling 2 mountains this dramatic piece of engineering is definitely worth visiting

I originally wanted to return to Spoleto to walk the aqueduct but, sadly, the recent earthquake made the bridge unsafe. The problem is further exacerbated by the fact that the Italian government funds are a basket case and any repairs will be well in the...More

Beautiful to view at all hours of the day. Unfortunately closed for several years since the earthquake damage, no evidence for any progress on repairing the damage.

Walk up to the Rocca Albornoziana and walk east side of the building and view from there. Sadly you can no longer walk across due to a recent earth quake.
