Ponte Pietra, Verona

4.6
Built by the Romans in the first century, Ponte Pietra is the historical legacy of Verona as well as a reminder of the city's resilience. The bridge's architecture features a mix of materials and building techniques spanning the two millennia of its existence. Although the retreating German army damaged the bridge in 1945, it was restoration with original stone. As you stroll across the Adige river, take in views of the old town center. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Verona trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • The bridge, taken together with the older part of the city as backdrop, the river and rapids below, is quintessential Verona.  more »
  • I visited the bridge during the day with my partner, it was really very nice and romantic. The view is magnificent and we also met a gentleman who played the piano on the deck ... In short, perfect atmosphere!

  • It is the oldest Roman monument in Verona, built in the 1st century BC Of 5 arches, only 2 left in white stone are of Roman origin, the central arch and subsequent brick were rebuilt in 1520, the last one on the right is a reconstruction of the medieval period in 1298. Very charming place, with the Adige flowing under and beautiful views wherever you look. You can indulge to photograph. I was there at the event "Verona in love", the bridge was full of stalls and this has taken away something, but not that much because beauty is undeniable!

  • Nice viewpoint but not much more. There are some lovely bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood though. I recommend that you make your way up to the panoramic look-out instead.
  • Positively impressed by the thunderous waters, rarely seen in an urban setting. By night the collocation lends itself to interesting pictures.
  • Beautiful bridge with nice views of the old city..... December sees a Christmas market here and on the far bank
  • Stunning scenery on this area I went in Dec and it was cozy surrounding and you can feel the loves is around you. So romantic feeling.
  • Beautiful views of the bridge and from on the bridge. Make sure you cross over to the other side and take some shots facing back into town
