Spectacular from a distance but unfortunately closed for "earthquake damage safety checks". Pity as I have a feeling that the Roman engineers who built this did it far better than modern engineers. Anyway, safety first for sure. Hopefully it will be reopended soon.

The Gira di Condotti starts at this ancient and impressive viaduct before meandering through the woods. The whole while you get stunning vistas of Spoleto. The path loops back around to the lower town where you can take the escalators up to the Rocco and Duomo. It is the perfect way to take in the highlights of Spoleto in a... More

One is able to walk around the castle up to the bridge on a very picturesque and well maintained road. The bridge itself is closed but the views either side are spectacular. Well worth a visit.

Late November this stunning construction was closed off pending a safety inspection because of the recent quake in nearby Norcia. A few people were running across it anyway, unsurprisingly. It's still fantastic to see.

Great spot in the Spoleto city. It's called the suiciders bridge as few people a year choose it to commit that act because of a big height of the structure. Nevertheless the view is stunning, especially when the sun is going behind the horizon. One of "must sees" in Umbria.

Nice walk around the castle and then you suddenly see the bridge, very impressive although after 10 minutes you have seen it all

A must-see in Spoleto - though the medieval bridge was closed during our visit due to safety reasons, we could admire it from the Fortress Albornoziana. It rests on 10 massive arches which span the deep ravine below.

Some say it was built in the XIII century, probably over the remains of an ancient Roman aqueduct. They still debate the actual origins, but it is ancient, probably about 700 years old. It’s amazing that early engineering was skilled enough to build such a bridge. It’s both tall and long. Great photo op. Worth a visit even if you... More
