The new 517m-long single-span crossing in Sellano, Perugia provides a direct pedestrian link to a medieval hamlet located 8.6km away when travelling by car.

Uniquely, the crossing has a difference of elevation between start and end point of 68m, which means users must walk uphill to reach Montesanto. As traffic is one-way, visitors must return either via a shuttle service or on foot via Lake Vigi at the valley floor. The crossing features a discontinuous deck with gaps between treads and is not recommended for vertigo sufferers.

Users are required to buy passage to the bridge, which includes the rental of mandatory safety harnesses.

The Tibetan Bridge opened in March and is claimed to be the highest footbridge of its type in Europe.
