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.

Spoleto is a village built on a hill like most of the umbrian villages. Thank god that these elevators exist were you can reach different levels of the village easier.

Very long escalators running underground in a very small village like spoleto . Taking you up the hill by a few lines of escalators and lifts . Park your car and go with one of the lines specified by color.

Spoleto is built on a hill, the streets are narrow and the best way to discover Spoleto is by foot, so if you are coming by car leave it in one of the three car parks and take one of the mechanized walkways. Even if...More

Very useful these elevators, mobile stairs and tapis roulant, that facilitate connections of many part of the beautiful town. Directions and signs are missing and this hinders their use.
