Create an itinerary including Roman Bridge
The ancient Romans were the first civilization to build large, permanent bridges. Early Roman bridges used techniques introduced by Etruscan immigrants, but the Romans improved those skills, developing and enhancing methods such as arches and keystones. There were three major types of Roman bridge: wooden, pontoon, and stone. Early Roman bridges were wooden, but by the 2nd century stone was being used. Stone bridges used the arch as their basic structure, and most used concrete, the first use of this material in bridge-building.

  • A very old bridge with Roman piers that it demonstrates the excellent quality of Roman engineering. Spoiled by asphalt road! (: How many modern structures will last so long?!

  • Was a little disappointing. This was a structure that was built over and not kept up as well as would be expected. Glad I saw it but would not go out of my way.

  • One of the places that are in the list of UNESCO and can be visited for free. You can walk on the bridge itself or walk under it in the nearest park
  • Amazing piece of history still in use today,a testament to the building skills of the ancient Romans
