To see something of this antiquity gives one a sense of admiration for the architects and builders of ancient times. The scale of this structure is incredible. That it is still standing in a zone that is prone to earthquakes is some testament to the work of the builders and the maintenance required to keep this bridge in good repair.... More

A very pleasant surprise after ascending the escalators in Spoleto. The structure was very impressive. A walk across was very rewarding with lovely views.

We were here for 3 weeks in Spoleto - this was one of the unique wonders of Spoleto. We walked to the venue on the top of the hill everyday to admire this great bridge and aqueduct.

What an amazing piece of architecture. The river bed was dry when we were there and we watched a couple of joggers running along it - they looked like little ants! Not for anyone who does not like heights.

This bridge is amazing and the view sensational. An easy walk across it is well worth the time to visit. We found easy parking on the side away from town and then walked down to the cathedral. Beautiful structure!

The aqueduct itself is amazing, both in terms of its preservation and its length and height. The setting is also stunning, both with the green hills and with an odd rock scar nearby.
