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

Have seen this from afar twice before as I have driven down the autostrada so it was good to see it close up. Took the escaltors and lift up and then walked on a flat and tree lined walkway to see it. Disappointed that I...More

Beautiful to view at all hours of the day. Unfortunately closed for several years since the earthquake damage, no evidence for any progress on repairing the damage.

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.

The access to the bridge was closed when we traveled, but it was still beautiful to look at. Built in the Middle Ages, it very reminiscent of Roman architecture and engineering, but I found it to be more graceful with its tall, narrow arches. It...More

TripAdvisor incorrectly translates “Ponte delle Torri” as “The Tower’s Bridge.” In Italian, Ponte delle Torri means Bridge of the Towers, those towers being the bridge pillars; “delle torri” is plural meaning “the towers.” The “Ponte” is 775 feet long, the “Torri” are as high as...More

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.
