It is said that this bridge was built only after the architect sold his soul to the devil, thus acquiring the skills to build the bridge. That is about as interesting it gets.

Magnificent vista. The bridge is a fascinating piece of folklore and is a perfect way to enter Cividale. Go for lunch, stay to wander through the walled streets and to visit this incredibly diverse monument to the Longobard history of Northern Italy.

If you take a walk through Cividale you'll very likely come to the Devil's Bridge anyway. The views of the old city from the bridge are great.

review after the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Great views of the river and people sunning and picnicking. Interesting seeing the levels of housing along the high banks along the almost gorge like opening. Varying ages of additions makes the bank-side seem like an archeological dig. Traffic on the bridge can be fast and unforgiving exercise care.

Just take a short walk from the center of Cividale along Corso Paolino di Aquilea, keep the Duomo at your left hand and you will encounter a charming 15th century bridge over the gorge where the river Natisone runs. Cross the bridge and enjoy the stunning view over the gorge and the lovely placed city of Cividale del Friuli. It... More

This nice bridge has a great history. A true icon for the little town of Cividale Del Friuli. This town is still all Italian, no mass tourism but nice and cosy squares, lot of locals having a drink, a real nice vibe. The bridge is a beautiful "walk to point" when you visit the town.

A small town in Friuli, Friuli Cividale, which has not yet been affected flood souvenirs from the Far East, is a great choice for a weekend trip.

The story underlying story the bridge is equally exciting to the bridge itself so anyhow, if you visit Cividale del Friuli you should obviously pay a visit! The bridge is impressive and so does the surrounding environment. For those not acquainted with similar urban constructions, the overall setting is great. After crossing the bridge and admiring its architecture you will... More
