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.

  • The bridge consists of five arches but only two left, white stone, go back to Roman times. Beautiful by day and night, thanks to dramatic lighting.

  • Beautiful 2000 year old Roman bridge. Beautiful views. Open air market on special days.
  • A gorgeous view that anyone visiting should take the time to see! This spot was simply magical and well worth the walk just to take it all in, even in frigid January with two babies! I highly recommend a walk down the river to the bridge; it's easy to see how so many inspirational works of art have come from this place.
  • This bridge is more than 2 thousand years. It's more than beautiful. It's charming, it's a piece of art and it's still standing. Unbelievable 😍😍❤️
  • Shortest way between town centre and Roman Theatre / museum. On a nice day its very picturesque. Great views of Verona from nearby hill.
  • Closes during (heavy) rains. Just the walk down from town is a bit treacherous during heavy rains. There's other hiking nearby as well. Beautiful gorge.
