  • Rebuilt on the ruins of an ancient bridge, "pons Aurelius", dating back to 215 ad, in the time of Emperor Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus, useful to unite the left bank of the River with Trastevere. Between 366 and 367, Emperor Valentinian made the first great restoration. Collapsed in 792 following a flood, was abandoned. In 1475, on the occasion of the Jubilee, Sixtus IV commissioned Baccio Pontelli of rebuilding the old bridge that took the name of the Pontiff. Prior to this construction, to connect the two banks they used a boat-ferry. In 1599 it was restored by Clement VIII, he did renew travertine paving and railings, until in 1880 the construction of embankments shall alter the appearance, with the placement of cast iron railings. It consists of four arches with a large circular eye on Central pylon, which served as an alarm bell in case of flood of the river. The restoration took place for the Jubilee of 2000 returned the fifteenth-century image of the bridge. With a masonry structure covered by travertine, Tuff today measure 118 meters long and 11 wide and is open to pedestrians and to lovers of scenery. Nice, but poorly attended.

  • The current bridge was built between 1473 and 1479, commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV. The bridge is a very nice motive and I have taken many pictures from this bridge.

  • You feel the beauty of the Tiber across this bridge of more than 500 years, and enjoy your shape and your driveway, its views and the river.

  • Ponte Sisto is populated at night by hawkers and panhandlers, musicians and other performers. But that's not a bad thing. The hawkers are generally polite compared to other places I've been and the soothing sounds of a guitar playing while you look over the Tiber at the lights of Rome is a nice change of pace.
  • Nice area. There are a lot of tourists and there are a lot of restaurants around. This area is also near the popular landmarks of rome.
  • Lovely view over the river and you can take the steps down to walk along side the river and walk through the city.
  • Just a bridge! Whilst it has a lot of history, it's easy to cross multiple times before you realise what you're walking on
  • Great photo spot, especially at night. Also, during August you can walk down the steps to the water where they have a great open air market with food, music, and games.
