Ponte Scaligero, Verona

(4.8/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • Romantic as all Verona ... on the double walk along Adige is a show! Some advice ... waiting for the sunset and photographed this castle from the bed of the river!

  • I haven't seen another bridge like this on my travels, you get great views of the river and it is in extremely good condition. 
  • Location with a great view where it is mandatory to take some pictures. Enjoy a walk along the Bank of the river.
