“Go for a walk and experience the historical touch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

The Tiberius Bridge, also known as Ponte d'Augusto e Tiberio, is located on one of the ends of the city’s main street, Via Corso d’Augusto. Construction work started during the rule of Augustus and finished by Tiberius in the 1st century AD.

I was so thrilled when stepped in the bridge, alive with history, and run my hand over the stones with the ancient inscriptions!

It's an impressive work of architecture. The bridge features five semi-circular arches and was made entirely from white Istrian stone. It represents a splendid example of the technical expertise of the Romans; not only did it survive till today but it’s still very much in use. The bridge is extremely well-preserved and is open to pedestrians and vehicular traffic. I had to wait for several minutes to take pictures without passing car in the view.

It was interesting to learn that the bridge was the only crossing of the river Marecchia not destroyed by the retreating German army during the Battle of Rimini in 1944. It is also said to have resisted all attempts at destruction - another demonstration of the engineering skills of the Romans.

May be because of its age, the tiny bridge pavement is a bit slippery and you need to be careful when walk here.
