Ponte Scaligero, Verona

(4.8/5 based on 1,800+ 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.

  • is a medieval bridge that leads to the Castle, worth a visit for the views and the incredible feeling that is exploring a building of that period.
