It's an exquisite work of architecture with a very long history; it's a place where you can feel the flow of time beneath your feet. Plus, kids love running up and down. Definitely worth the trip.

You have to wonder how it was built given the unique shape of the arch. It's quite a climb to the top but gives a great view when there. Amazing that it's survived the dam, railway and war

While this bridge is undeniably historic and picturesque and worth the visit, it really is only at most a 30 minute visit. There is only one place to park, on the east side of the river (opposite side from the town of Borgo a Mazzano)...More

This is one of the bridges one sees ona postcard and wonders where it is. Well it is near Borgo a Mozzano in Tuscany. One can walk over it from one side of the Serchio River to the other side. The bridge is 14th century...More

Built around 1100AD this was an important river crossing on the pilgrimage route from France to Rome. Now traffic free it is worth a few photos from the nearby carpark on the roadside about 10 miles N of Lucca.
