Impressive looking bridge. Not quite Pont Du Gard but still a really imposing structure and awesome to see. The view from the back as you walk in is the best. This is a nice stroll around here but do it early in summer if possible...More

Worth the very hot walk around castle to see this. Great to walk across and see valley view, amazing technical feat.

I am afraid of highs and this is known as the suicide bridge so it is a bit scary for me. It is worth the visit though since you get a great view from there. My legs were shaking all the time though

We parked at the bottom of Spoleto and walked through the attractive town to overlook the bridge. It's lovely but quite a steep ascent albeit with some lifts and escalators available.

Lovely looking Bridge but due to the recent earthquake the bridge is closed and cannot be crossed until the structural checks have been completed.

Shame it is closed due to earthquakes, but understandable! Love to come back and walk it! It is a real feet if engineering!

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.

We plan to visit at the beginning of November, We will have a rental car. I can't walk too far so I want to make it as easy as possible to see the bridge. Is there a car park near an escalator that will take me up to where I can walk to it. If so where is it? Thank you. Janet

You can arriving by car in the small parking before the bridge, on the Monteluco ( the mountain name ) side. :)
