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

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.

Take a walk across this bridge and notice the Roman construction. In spring breathe in the Spanish broom. Enjoy life.

Make sure you walk around the walkway. Agree to use the escalators. You can how on one just below and behind the Doumo. Go down the stairs to the right as you exit the Duomo and then turn right and you will find it shortly....More

Take all the "people movers" (which are pretty amazing in themselves) to the top of Spoleto and enjoy the view! Then marvel at this structure at the top of the city! A 13th century aqueduct with possibly a Roman base, it is a marvel!

Gorgeous walk, we were lucky the sky was clear and the sun was beginning to set. Epic views of all of Spoleto. Doesn’t take a long time but definitely worth the visit!
