  • From the middle of the Tiber waters, just downstream of Tiberina Island, I see a wretched ruin emerge, the only surviving furnace of an ancient passage. It is the Pons Aemilius, for us Romans simply Broken Bridge, a glorious ruin to which we are fond. For its past, of course, with the arches destroyed for centuries, there to remind us of the power and the devastating effects of floods. But also for poetry, now hidden by the vegetation settled in its cracks, here, where the river makes a loop and the water is turbulent. It represents the vestiges of a thousand-year-old history to be proud of. Who knows, maybe one day he could come out of his state of melancholy sadness and be restored and made usable as he deserves.

  • Ancient chronicles and images on coins of the 2nd century BC speak of the construction of this bridge. Already in the 16th century during the flood part of the bridge collapsed, the other part with the expansion of the Tibra riverbed was dismantled by people later. And now there is one arch in the middle of the river.... And when the bridge connected the Bullish Forum with the district of Trastevere. Today the bridge is named Ponte Rotto ("Broken").

  • Location rated 7 1/2 (part of the ancient Roman bridge; located between the Tiberina Island and the Palatino Bridge; he manages to make you imagine how beautiful structurally it might have been).

  • Roman bridge ruins! historical place and had great time there. Sitting there almost in middle of the river and enjoying the nature and history.
  • Beutiful remains of Roman empire building engineers skills.
  • Nice but quite abandoned, could be cleaned.
  • Formidable piece of ancient engineering, you can see with what detail this piece of bridge was built with amazing width and height, and in those days without machines, amazing structure.
  • A point to the river , watching or capturing some pictures here ...
