  • This handsome bridge was built in 62BC; for you roman history buffs that's the year after Cicero's consulship. And here it still stands over 2,000 years later, no doubt much repaired; but it's amazing...  more »
  • This is the oldest bridge still in operation in Rome, the one that has maintained its primitive structure. Pulled up long before the year zero, the watershed from the advent of Christ, just to be clear and remind myself. The magic is to discover it every time, better if from the walls of the waterfront. For example, I like to lay my eyes on the Latin inscriptions engraved on the arches, namely "Lucio Fabricio, son of Caio and superintendent of roads, undertook the construction". Every time I'm here I always think of it with admiration. In years less distant, they called it "Jewish Bridge" because of its proximity to the shore of the Ghetto. Or "Bridge Four Chiefs", for the two quadrifrontal sculptures that, according to some, represent the architects who restored it at the time of Sisto V, punished with beheading for their constant quarrels over the project. For us who live in the city, it's just a convenient access to Tiberina Island.

  • Unlike the Chestio Bridge, which connects the fabrizio bridge to the opposite side of Tiberian a beanand and Trastevere, the bridge is large stone, mainly with bricks and a large stone. The arch below the bridge is engraved with latin names in the middle.

  • This bridge is the oldest Roman bridge in Rome still existing in its original state. Built in 62 BC, it crosses half of the Tiber River to the Tiber island. It is an incredible romantic place. The Roman concrete under your feet has seen nearly 2000 years, earthquakes and incredible floods.
  • Magical at night. Nice walk leading down to the riverside walk.
  • 2100 years old and still in great working order!!!
  • Beautiful bridge with an amazing view perfect for that couple photo.
  • -Beautiful views -Older than 2000 years -Should make enroute it on the way either to or from Vatican city. -Food Stealing Birdies Pose for you. (pic)
