Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • Ancient roman bridge crossed with Scaletto era architecture. Also destroyed by the Germans and faithfully rebuilt by the Veronese. Marvel at the effort and wonder... also a quick way to cross the river without getting wet.
  • Beautiful Roman Bridge of year 100BC crossing over the river Adige. The bridge was partially destroyed in world war and reconstructed after it but the old part of the bridge can be still seen. A lot of restaurants and other places to visit at walking distance. in summer its good to walk around the river and enjoy a good feeling of history and pleasant atmosphere.
  • PONTE PIETRA is the beautiful roman bridge in Verona in a fantastic scenario made by the north curve of the Adige river. Many times destroyed and re-built with the same ancient stones, is 93 meters long and 7.2 meters wide. You can cross the bridge by walk and it's a wonderful and romantic experience.
  • The Ponte Pietra (Italian for "Stone Bridge"), once known as the Pons Marmoreus, is a Roman arch bridge crossing the Adige River in Verona, Italy. The bridge was completed in 100 BC, and the Via Postumia from Genoa to Aquileia passed over it. It is the oldest bridge in Verona. It originally flanked another Roman bridge, the Pons Postumius; both structures provided the city (on the right bank) with access to the Roman theatre on the east bank. The arch nearest to the right bank of the Adige was rebuilt in 1298 by Alberto I della Scala. Four arches of the bridge were blown up by retreating German troops in World War II, but rebuilt in 1957 with original materials.
  • well worth a visit, make sure to walk a bit along the river to get the best view
