Ponte Fabricio is the oldest bridge and was built in 62 BC. It spans the Tiber River to the Tiberina Island. Very well preserved, it still exists in its original composition.

This is the oldest bridge in Rome and a true delight to know that it still exists and takes weight. The crossing is to a small island in the middle of the river that doesn't have much to do for a tourist. The bridge is...More
