A comfortable way to reach La Rocca without much expenditure of effort and you can enjoy the views for much of the journey.

Good way to reach the Rocca and the the town centre, confortable mobile staircases bring you to the top of the hill. During the "trip" you can have a beautiful sight on the countryside. It's a good way of moving after having left the car in one of the parking places at the bottom of the hill.

Unfortunately we did not discover this linked series of escalators until we wanted to come down, but another time, I'd go up that way, and walk down zigzagging through the beautiful but very steep, old town centre.

This is a series of escalators and a lift taking you from the lower part of the town near Piazza Garibaldi up to the Rocca and Cathedral. That means you can ride to the top and spend the day walking downhill. Another is planned crossing the centre of town but work has ceased - presumably because of Italy's economic woes. Warning: The rubber handrails will leave your hands black - if you need to hold on, take a tissue!

This is the way to get about town. In the sweltering hot weather, the escalator doesn't just take one up to the Rocca, but is a good way to get to any restaurant. Rather than sweat uphill, one can cruise up teh mobile staircase, then amble gently down to one's chosen location in town. A must!
NB there is only one exit - the one shown on the map as giving out onto the back of the Duomo was padlocked when we stayed in Spoleto.
