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.

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

Walk accross the bridge and stop approx mid way (there are spots on either side) to take great pictures of the Natisone river and the city. On the North side you will see the mountain ranges in Slovenia as well. Once accross you can also walk down a trail and take pictures from below the bridge. Watch the traffic on... More

This bridge dates back many years and has quite a wonderful story to its naming. The view you can get from the bridge or of the bridge from near by parks is breathtaking... would recommend the stop over if you find yourself in these neck of the woods.

A quick trip on the regional rail line took us through agricultural country, with mountains coming closer, to Cividale del Friuli. A few minutes' walk brought us to a Saturday market on the edge of the old town. Wandering the streets towards the Natasone River took us to a table on the patio of a bar for due ombre of... More

The legend of this bridge tell that for the costruction of this bridge the devil want the soul of the first that have crossed it. The wise people of Cividale, after the bridge was built, did cross a dog and so the devil was deceived.... More

The turquoise water flowing down from the Dolomites makes this a beautiful sight in this charming town. We even heard one passerby say "ciao, bella!" to another, just like in the movies ;-).
