I was amazed at what had been built here. A long couple of moving Walkways connected to elevators to make visiting so much easier for tourists. A must

Having visited several hill-top towns in Umbria, it was a refreshing change to have this series of escaltors to take you up to the top rather than using local buses or simply walking great distances up steep hills. And it is free!!

Also known as the Scala Mobile. A series of escalators to get you up to the top of the hill, or you can get off at a couple of places on the way up.

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 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
