You walk through the castle grounds and you have free access to the bridge. It's style and history is fascinating, as is the knowledge that it was rebuilt after being destroyed by the retreating Germans in WW2. A brilliant reconstruction which it would be very difficult to pick. Beautiful views of the river and surrounding hills and out to the... More

Took a walk while visiting the city along some of the cobbled roads and came across the bridge which leads into the arena of Verona where cafes and restaurants plentiful. You can see the river below and take some stunning pictures from the bridge.

İnsanlar hem günlük yaşamda kullanabilirken tarihi ve antik dokusunu bozmamışlar. Pencerelerinden manzarayı izleyebilirsiniz. Mutlaka görülmeli. While people can use it in everyday life, they have not ruined the history and antiquity. You can watch the scenes from the windows. Absolutely visible.

Spanning the Arno, the Ponte Scaligero is a fantastic example of architecture from Roman times...its castle like ramparts and archs are unique in Verona and the Trento region. Walk across from the city to the Amphitheatre on the other side, grab a little lunch or coffee at a quaint bistro.

Must see in Verona! This bridge is full of musicants, memes and its architecture is really amazing. You can pass to the other part and go down to the bank of the river and enjoy there really nice view.

Many Verona visitors who have been previously in Moscow or have seen the famous Moscow Kremlin are surprised to see similar design of the bridge walls near the Castel Veccio (Old castle). Such a detail reminiscing the swallow tale was also used for decoration of the wall of Moscow Kremlin built by Italian architect Aristotle Fiorovanti. Was it a fashion... More
