Another bridge that we saw in Rome recently was Ponte Fabricio, which connects Isola Tiberina (Tiber Island) to the “mainland”. It was constructed in 62BCE and is the oldest surviving Roman bridge in Rome. Nearby you can also see Ponte Rotto (Broken Bridge, on the left of the photo below), which is even older but only one span has survived.
If you are a fan of Dan Brown’s “Angels and Demons”, you will have noticed that our blog entries for yesterday and today are both locations mentioned in that book. You can read about more sites connected with the book in our literary travel blog.
