Fodor's Expert Review Ponte delle Torri

Spoleto Fodor's Choice

Standing massive and graceful through the deep gorge that separates Spoleto from Monteluco, this 14th-century bridge is one of Umbria's most photographed monuments, and justifiably so. Built over the foundations of a Roman-era aqueduct, it soars 262 feet above the forested gorge—higher than the dome of St. Peter's in Rome. Though you can't walk across the bridge as it's being repaired due to earthquake damage, it's still a must-see, particularly on a starry night.
