Just cross the bridge and stop and stare for a while at the wonderful panorama and the colours of the water. It might sound exaggerate, but this bridge really brings you back in time, when the story of the construction blends with legend. The legend says that the bridge was built by the Devil himself and he wanted the tribute... More

We walked down the steps at the side of the bridge but you need to be quite fit as there is an awful lot and they need care when descending

Cividale is by far one of the most beautiful little towns I visited on our last trip to Italy and the Ponte del Diavolo is absolutely stunning!

It is a scenic bridge, with beautiful arches, across a gorge. It makes for a great photo opp, if you don't mind the many people using the bridge on a busy day. The river below looks clean and clear. When the river water is low, you'll see people climb a long flight of stairs down to walk or even sun... More

The legend says the Devil himself built it. If you're coming from the main square leave the city behind you, cross the bridge, at the end, on the right, there's small metallic gate. Follow the staircase and get to the water level. The bridge from below is the best you can get - walk on the riverside, don't enter in... More

You cannot go to Cividale (pronounced Chivi dali) and not take a picture of this iconic bridge. the gorge is beautiful and steps allow you to go down to the river bed if you feel so inclined. The only downside is the speed at which traffic drives across it (one way at a time controlled by traffic lights).

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.

A good place to get a view of the old town, if you go across the bridge from the town and turn left, you will find a small civic park which gives good views of the bridge (and is a good spot for photos).
