Spoleto has a wonderful system of elevators and connected moving walkways that can carry you up or down the hills in very efficient fashion. They are free and easily accessible. There are three separate systems. The longest runs from the Posterna Car Park up to Piazza Campello with three exits/entrances between those points. The Posterna Car Park is identified as... More

Like most reasonable sized towns in Italy that are built on large lumps of rock you now find escalators and lifts to get you from the car parks at the bottom up to the higher levels of interest in the town. Spoleto has gone a bit further than most by having a 1km long travelator with stop off points at... More

Stumbled upon the escalator by accident. Ascends multiple flights with exits to the Duomo and the Giro Rocca. Also leads to elevators that go up to the Rocca. While strolling the Giro Rocca be sure to stop at the LA Portella cafe. Fabulous over look and great capuccino. The beer isn't bad either. Ride up and walk down. What a... More

Escalators and travelators, make Spoleto's many attractions accessible to all, plus the under cover car parking is a bonus. There are three mechanised area's taking you to different parts of the town.

Spoleto is a village built on a hill like most of the umbrian villages. Thank god that these elevators exist were you can reach different levels of the village easier.

I've never seen anything like this and they are in spotless condition. What incredible foresight by someone to install these escalators in this town. Take them to the top of the hill and walk your way down through the town on your way out - there is something beautiful/historical/interesting around every corner. The trip to the top is around 10...

Very long escalators running underground in a very small village like spoleto . Taking you up the hill by a few lines of escalators and lifts . Park your car and go with one of the lines specified by color.

The hotel told us about this and how grateful we were! Instead of climbing up to Spoleto to see the Duomo and ROCCA, you can simply take the underground moving passageway and the lift up to whichever stop you want to see, be it the Duomo, or the ROCCA, or the bridge/roman aquaduct.

Spoleto is built on a hill, the streets are narrow and the best way to discover Spoleto is by foot, so if you are coming by car leave it in one of the three car parks and take one of the mechanized walkways. Even if you don't have a car the mechanized walkways offer some relief. The walkways are well... More
