Ponte Scaligero, Verona
(4.8/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Bellissimo il ponte Scaligero, especially with Christmas stalls that dot along the way. Seems to walk back in time. Perfectly preserved.

  • הגשר מאפשר תצפית מדהימה על נהר האדג'ה ומהווה מקום לצילומים יפיפים. הגשר באורך של כ- 50 מטר [מרשים לתקופה שבה נבנה לפני כ- 650 שנה] בנוי מלבנים אדומות ושיש, עם עמודים וקשתות יפים. 
  • The Ponte Scaligero is fortified with three arches, and dovetail embattled defensive system of great of the great medieval castle Soars on the Adige river from the Tower of the keep, set in the middle of Castelvecchio. Worth a visit.
