We stumbled upon these underground moving walkways, not realising - with our woeful Italian - that the lines on the city map provided by the tourist info related to them. They are exceptional: free, clean, non-threatening and such a bonus to use on boiling hot...More

Very useful to reach the Rocca Albornoziana, but what a pity that it close very early in the night, leaving the town isolated a little bit. They could use a method to light the escalator only when somebody is approaching.... very simple

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...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.
