Bridges of Italy
Latest update: 28 April 2022
The most famous bridges of Italy represent some of the country's best landmarks in a range of settings.
Foremost among them is Venice's beautiful Rialto Bridge which was built in the 16th century and provides the typical image of the city as it crosses the Grand Canal.
In Florence the wonderful Ponte Vecchio which spans the River Arno is equally impressive, sharing a common trait of being built with shops along it but with the added feature of the unique Vasari Corridor which allowed dignitaries of the day to avoid the commoners below.
