The picturesque Ponte Fabricio doesn't actually cross the Tiber into Trastevere but to Tiber Island, man made by the Etruscan leader Tarquinius. To get from the island to Trastevere proper you take the Ponte Cestio built in 24 BC! It's a nice little bridge with...More

The old stone bridge connects the Jewish Quarter with Trestevere. Running underneath it in summer along the bank is a very busy, lively string of bars, restaurants and market stalls.

The first version of this stone bridge, that connects Tiber Island with the west bank, was built in the 1st century. The bridge was partly demolished and rebuilt in the 19th century, but it is still a memorable structure.

Originally built around 50 BC, it connected Tiber Island to the west from Pons Fabricius on the east side of the island. With bad flooding, the bridge has been rebuilt several times over the millennia; the last in the late 1800's when the channel was...More
