This was once the oldest bridge on the Tevere. Fist it was a wooden construction, later a combination of wood and stone. It was rebuilt several times due to the floods of the river, and today there are only small fragments what you can see.

The bridge itself is not that beautiful or anything else, but it is a touch of history, thus thrilling. Visit it when you visit Isola Tiberina.
