Tiberio's Bridge, Rimini: 12 reviews and 29 photos

This amazing Roman bridge still carries traffic over water today even though it is 2000 years old. An inscription on large stones mid-way across the bridge state that work on the bridge over the Marecchia River, then known as Ariminus, began under the Emperor Augustus in 14 A.D. and was completed under Tiberius in 21 A.D. The bridge still connects the city centre to Borgo San Giuliano and leads to the roads Via Emilia and Via Popilia that lead north.
