An amazing 14th century 80 meter high aqueduct that spans the gorge high above Spoleto, at the back of the Rocco Albornez fortress. You can't walk across it now as it's closed, but it's definitely worth taking the escalator up there to enjoy the circular...More

Well worth the trip to the top of the castle to be able to see this truly jaw dropping aqua duct. Shame you are not able to walk across for what would be a truly unique experience

The panoramic path around the fortress makes for a fine stroll with pleasant views, with possibilities for taking some interesting and 'different' pictures of the viaduct. The viaduct itself was not accessible to the public when we visited.

Take all the "people movers" (which are pretty amazing in themselves) to the top of Spoleto and enjoy the view! Then marvel at this structure at the top of the city! A 13th century aqueduct with possibly a Roman base, it is a marvel!

Gorgeous walk, we were lucky the sky was clear and the sun was beginning to set. Epic views of all of Spoleto. Doesn’t take a long time but definitely worth the visit!
