The spectacular Roman bridge, the ‘Ponte d’Augusto’ at Narni in Umbria, Italy was built in 27 BC and was one of the largest bridges ever built by the Romans. The bridge was built to take the Flaminian Way over the river Nera. Originally the bridge around 160 metres and consisted of 3 or 4 arches, but in ca. 1050 the bridge began to collapse and today all that remains is one arch at the southernmost side. The remains of this historically interesting bridge offer a romantic view which has been painted by many painters, the most famous being the water-colour by Jean-Baptiste-Cammille Corot which is on display in the Louvre Paris.
