Should see

If you go to see this bride, be sure to take the steps down to the river and walk in the river bed just under the bridge.

Easy stroll with good views. Being late summer the river was low, would be better in spring time I think. View from the east side allows you to take in the homes and so forth along the city side; built right on the cliff face.

The people of "Cividat" who built this bridge were definitely assisted by the Devil! The magnificent structure is so beautifully positioned over the Natisone river. The best vantage point is behind the church on other side from Cividale. Walk behind the church closest to the bridge and you will find a lookout point with a black metal fence that extends... More

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

... to cross the bridge and walk up the side road where you will find a viewpoint for a photo opportunity of the bridge and gorge.

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
