I live in Spoleto, and I never tire of walking up the path and gazing at the Ponte. A beautiful and very special Umbrian and Italian site.

We enjoyed the view of the bridge. We had hoped to walk across it, but it is currently not accessible. It's blocked by a fence with warning signs.

This is the icon of Spoleto,. Any photos I saw of Spoleto had this magnificent bridge with it. We did not walk on the bridge but drove up to the top and photographed it. It was a beautiful day.

I've been in Spoleto last year when the earthquake was on the newspaper every day. I'd surprised by the elegance of this bridge that sustained more than one earthquake during his long life

Due to the earthquake last year there was a concern about this beautiful tall structure across the ravine. It has been closed to the public officially but some people were seen crossing it. It can be viewed from many positions and the closure does not...More
