  • The years pass and the bridge of Hannibal is always undervalued. Despite being a fine stone bridge of Roman period (the name of Hannibal is traditional, but lacking in historical reality) is not reported by any road sign. The lower portions, then, smell of urine!

  • I had to look it up on the map because there is no direction to get there. One yellow sign hidden in vegetation is placed on the bridge itself. Is close to a fast road and you have to be very careful to go around. It is partly covered with grass and only a plaque placed by side remember the vestiges. in my opinion deserves more respect, at least for the years he has

  • This bridge only one arch crossed until 1823 the Creek Roars into its final stretch. The Creek was diverted in 1823 to pass the road to Santa Margherita under the arch. It is likely that the Carthaginian supplies in the area are landed during the invasion of Italy by Hannibal, and this would explain the name. The first mention of the bridge is of 7 January 1049, in a deed to some land in the area which he donated Rainald, the Genoese Church of Santa Maria. Whether this is really a medieval bridge or older, you really have seen supplies to Hannibal's troops, find it hard to decide because, unlike the buildings of artistic character, whose style varies depending on their ages, buildings only utilitarian forms mostly determined by the use for which they are intended, what makes the dating much harder. However it is a very picturesque and an important monument in the landscape of Rapallo.

  • The bridge itself is very impressive but the location is not very attractive because it is too closed in with buildings to appreciate the structure. Also you cannot walk on the bridge. The sign board is not very helpful as it does not explain actual history of the bridge very well. For example it could talk about when it might date from given the design of the bridge and the materials used, and where the route it is on actually led to. In this regard the description on the Commune di Rapallo website is better. There is instead a lengthy discussion about the early tribes that lived in the area at the time of Hannibal, which is irrelevant since clearly Hannibal did not built this bridge. Further it is unlikely that the Teguli derived their name from a type of tile as the sign board claims, and more likely that the type of tile tool its name from them. It would be better to describe when the bridge was first associated with Hannibal and why.
  • You can't cross the old bridge...
  • This Roman-style bridge, called "Hannibal," was built over the ancient stream bed Boate, and remained as a reminder of the era when the stream was diverted to achieve what today is porto canale di Rapallo. It is not known when it was built, the first historical documents that they write are the year 1000 a.d. and then doesn't seem to be really well from the time of Hannibal!
