"Isola Tiberina" Isola Tiberina Tip by Julius_Caesar
Isola Tiberina, Rome: 26 reviews and 43 photos
In ancient times the island, which lay opposite the city?s port, had large structures of white travertine at either end built to resemble the stern and prow of a ship. Since 293 B.C., when a temple was dedicated to Aesculapius, the god of healing, the island has been associated with the sick (now there is also a hospital on the island). The bridge you see in the pic is Ponte Fabricio, the oldest original bridge, built in 62 B.C.
