We in the area call this our "little Grand Canyon", and I have to say that some of the views are impressive. One of the big differences with the original one in Arizona and Utah is the fact that in the US you can comfortably drive to both rims of the canyon, whereas here you have to walk an over... More

Il ponte del diavolo is reached by a long walk downhill, parts of which are very steep with no steps. But if I can do it, anybody can! Just be sure to arrange a return trip back up to Civita with a 4x4 vehicle. There are great views of the mountains, gorge, bridge and Ionian Sea on the way down,... More

We walked to the 'Devil's Bridge' in the rain which was a bit tricky as the path is paved in stone that gets slippery when wet. It's a long way down with lots of steps and steep path, but if you like walking, it's worth the effort. Great views at the bridge. Suggest you arrange to get a ride back... More

This walk is very rewarding. Parts of the walk are very steep steps or steep road. After the bridge the path deteriorates to very rocky. Views are spectacular.

There are many Devil's bridges. This one is dramatic and close to Civita. The views are spectacular and well worth seeing.

If you are traveling all the way to Civita, be sure to hike down to Devil's Bridge. Great views both above and below. We stumbled onto an Albanian choir singing on the bridge. Such magic with the incredible surroundings.

Went down there in a 4x4 on a day trip; was beautiful weather, the views were spectacular and the peace and tranquility were wonderful. Did also walk down there on another occasion, which was a good workout! :D

We were fortunate enough to hit lucky and take the four wheel drive down to the bridge for a very modest price and with a charming driver. The bridge is amazing as is the gorge. Well worth walking down to find it if the jeep,is not around.

Beautiful, albeit warm descend/ascend to the bottom of the ravine. We did not have time to explore further than to Ponte del Diavolo.
