We enjoyed the view of the bridge. We had hoped to walk across it, but it is currently not accessible. It's blocked by a fence with warning signs.

This is the icon of Spoleto,. Any photos I saw of Spoleto had this magnificent bridge with it. We did not walk on the bridge but drove up to the top and photographed it. It was a beautiful day.

It's a good photo spot in Spoleto. We did a walking tour and hit a local olive oil producer for a tour. As we walked through town the group used this bridge for a photo stop. Nice place.

I've been in Spoleto last year when the earthquake was on the newspaper every day. I'd surprised by the elegance of this bridge that sustained more than one earthquake during his long life

Was closed due to earthquake of August 2017 but a sight to behold from the Rocca. Yet another amazing Roman engineering feat.

This is an impressive bridge, even if it closed due to the earthquake of 2016. You need to walk to the back of the cattle in old town or it is easily missed.
