Bridge Tourist Spot
Legend has it that the designer of Ponte Scaligero arrived at the bridge on horseback so he would be ready to ride away should the structure collapse. The bridge was built at the command of Cangrande II della Scala, a tyrannical ruler who wanted to be able to escape his castle should the people rebel against him. The bridge remained unharmed through many violent struggles until 1945, when retreating German troops destroyed it. It was reconstructed faithfully in 1949 and opened again in 1951. The fortified walkway, now a pedestrian- and bicycle-only bridge, connects two sections of Verona over the Adige River. A visit to Ponte Scaligero represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Verona vacation generator to plot your vacation.

  • A compulsory passage bridge in Verona. Imposing, crossing the river and welcome who arrives!

  • Well-preserved and steeped in history. Beauty of amazing day at night. Well maintained and clean, except for the locks of love (shut up!)

  • Already looking at him you can see that it is impressive but when cross it you find that it is also much more. From inside enjoying very special past Verona and it is a must see.

Where to stay in Verona

The historical center of Verona is packed with famous luxury hotels, which offer all the modern conveniences but also tend to be very expensive and require booking months in advance. If you're a spontaneous traveler visiting on a budget and staying in the central area is not one of your musts, consider checking into a small B&B or family-operated farm just outside the city. Verona's picturesque countryside offers less expensive but comfortable lodgings with good food and friendly hosts, all within a short drive from the bustling city center.
