We leave early to reach Spoleto in time to enjoy our wander through this graceful Italian hill town. Its origins go back as far as the Bronze Age. It was important as a Roman colony and later as an independent Duchy in the Middle Ages, finally annexed to the Papal States. Our walk starts at the Ponte delle Torri aqueduct, an astonishing piece of medieval engineering, which spans 240m across the Tessino gorge. The scenic walk goes to Castelmonte and through beautiful woods to the top of Monteluco and then descends into Spoleto where, time permitting we can spend a little more time.
Walking – 4hrs moderate
