Isola Tiberina, Rome: 26 reviews and 43 photos

  Ponte Rotto or as it was named the Ponte Aemilius
by martin_nl

The most ancient bridge to go over the Tiber was the Pons Aemilius, built in 179BC. One part of the bridge is still visible just below the Isola Tiberina. It is now referred to as the Ponte Root, which means kaput bridge.

Directions: Walk to the Tiber from the Forum Boarium. You'll have a nice view over the Isola Tiberina and the Ponte Rotto from the Ponte Palatino bridge.
