Since the town is spread on a steep hill, this mode of people mover is ideal to get around the town with minimal effort. One can park at ponziana and take this sliding carpet up to the castle

We were bracing ourselves for the long trek to the top of the hill when we discovered these safe, clean people movers that took us to the top in mere moments!

So many old and picturesque Italian villages are perched on hill tops for their protection through history. Unfortunately this can easily preclude visits from those of us with mobility problems. Spoleto has put in this very attractive and well maintained escalator system that you can...More

We found it very convenient and interesting that these moving walkways are here in Spoleto to take weary travelers up to the top of the city. We did use them.

Thanks to this modern "moving carpet" and elevators on the most important places in the town, we could explore this phenomenal place! There is a good solution to arrange in the elevator's area/old city walls exhibitions of modern art, too! Congrats!

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

Very helpful to have a mechanised walkway especially in the middle of a heatwave in hilly Spoleto. Cool, clean, convenient and free.

We have been to Spoleto several times but this was the first time we went on these escalators all the way to the top under the Rocca. It is interesting half way to look down the valley where the Flaminia road runs but it is...More
