Ponte Pietra, Verona

The Ponte Pietra is a Roman arch bridge which spans the Adige River in Verona, and it dates back to the 1st century BC making it one of Verona’s oldest monuments. It was also known as the Pons Marmoreus – the Marble Bridge. There was once a wooden bridge at this site but due to floods the bridge collapsed on many occasions and constantly had to be rebuilt. Finally in 1508 the Roman stone arch bridge was built. The bridge consists of five arches, all of varying sizes. Four of the arches were blown up by retreating German troops in World War II but it was restored to its former glory and rebuilt using the original white marble materials in 1957 and completed in 1959. Today the bridge’s eventful history have made the bridge a symbol of Verona’s history and it is a popular spot for visitors to take photographs of the city and, as in many other Italian cities, to place lovers locks.
