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

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.

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
