  • Impressive at the outset, the age of the bridge! It will immediately begin to respect and pay homage to those who built it

  • For some reason the whole area around the island, with its bridges and roads my walk seemed terribly romantic. Not all bridges the same beautiful but add charm to the landscape ....

  • There is a legend about the ponte Fabricio also known as the "ponte quattro capi" for the following legend. It is said that towards the end of 1500, Sixtus V decided to operate the bridge renovation, and made to Commission the work in four architects. These architects, however, put a strain on the Pontiff to causes of their constant bickering. Thus Sixtus V, considered very severe, he waited patiently for the restoration came to an end, then captured the four architects and had them executed right there, on the same bridge that they were busily to restore. According to legend, Sixtus V had put on the ponte Fabricio two sculptures, representing the faces of four architects, sculptures placed on deck. Each of the 4 heads pointing indignantly shoulders to the other three, although they are part of a single statue: and so those architects who were in discord in life, now I am condemned for eternity to share the same space.

  • One of the oldest (the oldest?) Bridges in Rome. Nice way to go to the isle in the Tiber
  • Wonderfull bridge, nice for walks alongside and or across the tiber island.
  • Don't belittle this place, yes it's a bridge and it's not as crowded as the one at Florence, you can enjoy the beauty of the skyline around the area during sunset and snap a lovely photo!
  • I did not go to this bridge for purpose, but it was really a surprise spot. Very beautiful at sunset, stream is a little bit fast here, and the scene is so quite.There is a hospital on the island across the bridge, and I was told by my host that he was born in that hospital, as well as Francesco Totti.
  • Worth checking out, especially at dusk
