Tiberio's Bridge, Rimini: 12 reviews and 29 photos
Tiberio's bridge connects the Corso d'Augusto, the old town's main street, with San Giuliano in the northwest. It was built over the Marecchia river and finished in the year 21 A.D. The work began under emperor Augustus in the year 14, but finished under his successor Tiberius, hence the name. five arches of Istria stone are the main structure of this bridge which is still in use. Once, it was part of the Via Emilia which was one of the main streets in the Roman Empire.
Tiberio's bridge is not leading anymore over the river Marecchia as this was rerouted. The original end of the Marecchia became the marina of Rimini and to the southwest of the bridge, you will find a kind of lake as well as a small park and some swampy land. In 1885, the bridge became a national monument.
