It is supposedly the oldest bridge in Verona and an ancient Roman bridge. From Wikipedia, I’m not sure if it’s really original and has partially been rebuilt. In either case, it’s a very good representation of the bridge that was or would have been there to get to the theater. The bridge is a lot wider than I would have expected and I would have expected stones on traveling portion.

Beautiful old Roman bridge over looking the Adige river.

The bridge was destroyed in the war and rebuilt after so you can see where the bridge was damaged.

Perfect for early morning or sunset photos and a great place to enjoy an ice-cream whilst listening to the church bells in the distance. This bridge is very peaceful and not too overcrowded with tourists.

This bridge was built in the year 100 AD. Four of the arches of this bridge were blown up by retreating Germans during WWII. The bridge was rebuilt back in 1957, using the original rock. I don't know, I just love walking on something historical like this - it's free. The water rushing beneath sounds beautiful.

Very beautiful old Roman five arch bridge crossing the Adige river. The original was built 100 BC making it the oldest bridge in Verona. Rebuilt in 1298 but it still contains Roman elements. Also bombed by the Germans during the final stages of World War II but restored to its former shape in 1959. It has a beautiful setting with a portal to the Old Town to the south and the foot of St.Pietro Hill to the north.

We have a daughter named Pietra and she got crazy when she discovered there is a bridge with the same name of her. Unfortunately, we arrive there and it was night. We took some photo, of course, but we didn't have the chance of really seeing it. Maybe if we had use any kind of transportation, we would have arrived there before so we could see it. Anyway, our daughter loved to have reached it and taken some photos with the name of the bridge, :) :) :)

Ponte Pietra is a super beautiful place to visit. The view is fantastic at the Duomo of Castel San Pietro. We brought drinks and food. We went up with a lift, 1 euro one way. And down on foot. We really enjoyed this

Just in front of Castel San Pietro. This is my favorite bridge in the city. Really old and well preserved.

The famous bridge in Verona boasts great views and, in the current climate, less tourists than usual. Walking along the banks of the river is quite pleasant. I would have given an extra star but for the fact that the water does not look particularly appealing.

Over 2000yrs old this bridge remains in use today and is a beautiful and timely reminder of how great the Romans where at building.
It spans the river by the roman theatre.

Depends what time of day you go we went when it was quite during the week at the weekend a tourist trap - everybody and their performing dog on the bridge - but the Chinese seemed to love it - graet on a quiet day a circus any other time - heaven knows what its like in the summer. Some history here as this was rebulit after WW2 - worth the visit but not the hastle
