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 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

Only a town with an ancient history can have a bridge built by the devil. 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 ;-).

Fantastic view over one of the most beautiful rivers of the region. You can climb down to the shore just beneath the bridge and watch the cristal-clear blue water from a very good position.

Cividale is a small town, so you'll probably see the Ponte del Diavolo on your first walk through the town centre :) Worth visiting by nightfall, as the bridge is nicely lit.

Dramatic bridge with surrounding medieval buildings. On Sunday some shops open and restaurants excellent.

The entire town of Cividale del Friuli is a hidden gem and well worth a visit. Apart from wonderful views from the bridge, take a walk along the riverbanks.
