According to CNN, it takes about 30 to 45 minutes to cross the entire bridge. Of course, the speed depends on the courage of individual visitors. For those who do not find the height from the ground too much of an adrenaline rush, they can entertain themselves by observing about a thousand partitions, between which there are gaps. This type of bridge is sometimes called Tibetan.

The mayor of Sellano, Atillio Gubbiotti, told local newspaper Corriere della Sera that the bridge is intended to revitalize the area and help it cope with a declining population. Eastern Umbria, where the adrenaline attraction is located, was the epicenter of a devastating earthquake in 2016, which resulted in the depopulation of the region.

Some villages, such as the nearby Castelluccio, were completely destroyed and the locals have not been able to return to their homes to this day. Gubbiotti hopes that the suspension bridge will help boost the local economy a bit.

The attraction opened over the Easter weekend and can hold a maximum of 90 visitors at any one time. They always reserve a specific hour window, tickets are available online. Appropriate and sturdy footwear is a must for the transition, the minimum required height of each visitor is 120 centimeters.

Entrance fees to Venice start to be paid in April. How exactly will it work?
