Giro dei Condotti
Sep. 2019
A wonderful trail that leads from near Piazza Garabaldi to the Ponte delle Torri. We just wish the Ponte was open to pedestrian travel so we could complete the loop instead of retracing our steps.

Take a walk on the wildside
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Yes the ponte del torre is closed (since 24/7/16). Yes it is a pain.

Right, now walk from town to the alternative start from Chiesa S.Pietro (church of saint Peter) and follow the signs. It's an easy walk relatively flat. Towards the end as you go past some old farm houses it can get a bit steep going down hill but I'd still class it as easy. The best views are back over the valley towards the castle and the old (XIII) bridge.

Just do it. You won't regret it.

Great walk and views
May 2018 • Couples
Not so easy to reach this at the moment, as the Ponte dei Torri is closed following the 2016 earthquakes, however, you can get to this walking route in other ways. This is a level route along the hills opposite the town, with great views of the old town and castle (La Rocca). Plenty of other footpaths up into the hills are well signposted from here.

Don't be intimidated by the bridge closure- this hike is a MUST
Jun. 2018 • Family
Yes, access to this trail is complicated by the fact that you can't cross the aqueduct. Don't be put off - the views are simply too stunning to miss out on this hike! A previous review gives directions for how to access the trail, but here's an alternative (about 20 minutes to the trail head):

-From the old town/city center, take Via Monterrone (minutes from the Piazza del Mercato) - go downhill until you exit the old walls
-Continue STRAIGHT until you pass a gas station on your left (you can't miss it!)
-Turn LEFT at the gas station, heading directly toward the church of S Pietro. Yes, you have to cross a busy road - it's tricky but totally doable.
-The road (Via Giro de Ponte) veers left- simply follow it and you will see clear signs pointing you toward the start of the Giro dei Condotti.

The start of the hike is steep and a bit rocky, but consider that our five-year-old was able to do it and I saw plenty of older hikers on the trail. Then it evens out and the views back to the town and the ponte and breath-taking. Bring a picnic lunch - there are picnic tables at several of the scenic lookouts. Even if you don't hike all the way (we had to double-back to retrieve our stroller), the experience is simply incredible.

A must see
Oct. 2017
The 1st thing I want to say is to find the tourist office...they will NOT try to sell you anything and from there you can get a map of the town. the next thing is FIND the ELECTRIC sidewalk. We walked and walked and walked and it is all uphill until we found it. Once you get to the top it is just an amazing view. The museum is cool, but the bridge and the views are awesome. A must see.

No access via Ponte della Torri
Apr. 2018 • Couples
If you are considering taking a hike along the Giro dei Condotti at the present time it is not possible to cross over the Ponte della Torri as it is closed due to earthquakes in recent years. Access to the Giro must be sought from other paths.

Spoleto
Sep. 2017 • Couples
Spoleto is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. The Umbrian area is green and you can see the sweeping countryside as you hike and tour the area. It is breathtaking

What an amazing stay we had.
Jun. 2016
Spoleto, swathed in ancientness. Spectacularly situated with some of the most interesting things to do. Climbing mountains over high bridges where stunning views across the countryside were a highlight for us. Think Isabella Rosalini, theater and water fountains. Gelato, and tomato pasta and prosecco. What is also incredible is that underneath this ancient city is an amazing massive escalatored walk ways. Amazing! Loved this place, but then again we loved all of Italy.

With the children this is a great walk with wonderful views of the bridge and city. Not too steep the route is a pleasure and ensures a good appetite for lunch!

Wonderful walk
Sep. 2016 • Couples
The Giro dei Condotti is a great walk along the outer perimeter of the city across the Ponte delle Torre. Unfortunately because the Ponte dei Torre is temporarily closed pending engineering review as a result of the August earthquake in eastern Umbria you have to take a round about route. Exit the city thru Piazza Liberta onto Via Metteotti. Turn left at the 2nd major intersection - a continuation of Metteotti - and cross S.S. 3 (auto stata) towards Chiesa S Pietro. Follow the road (Via Strada di Monteluco) to the intersection of the tower at the end of the far side of the Ponte dell Torre. Warning - this is the road to Monteluco and has a small shoulder. Drivers here know only 2 speeds - fast and faster so watch out for speed demons coming off of Monteluco. Once at the Tower ascend to the Giro. Taking a left puts you on the Giro, taking a right puts you on La Via di Francesco - the trail to Monteluco. The Giro proceeds largely level until in declines on the north of the city into a neighborhood just outside the wall at Ponzianina. You can grab the escalators to the Giro dei Rocca upon entry. Unique views.
