  • Like the rest of Rimini, the bridge is really nice and a gem of all the history present in the city. Loved to see it! Also found really interesting that the bridge is actually over a part of the sea.....  more »

  • The Bridge of Tiberius (Italian: Ponte di Tiberio) or Bridge of Augustus (Latin: Pons Augustus) is a Roman bridge in Rimini, Italy. The bridge features five semicircular arches with an average span length of ca. 8 m. Construction work started during Augustus' reign and was finished under his successor Tiberius in 20 AD; an inscription thus calls the structure as "given by both emperors".[1] The bridge was the only crossing of the Marecchia not destroyed by the retreating German army during the Battle of Rimini as it was judged military pointless.[2] The bridge is still open to pedestrian and vehicular traffic, with the exception of heavy goods vehicles.
  • Quaint little town with a cute little parade of cafe's and restaurants. The bridge itself is very special and feels like the town has been beautifully preserved from the past. If you're nearby, worth visiting, otherwise not worth any major detours.
