Ponte Scaligero

Historical Bridge Verona, Italy

A must see of Verona, the Ponte Scaligero

The Castel Vecchio Bridge or Scaliger Bridg is a fortified bridge in Verona, over the Adige River. The segmental arch bridge featured the world's largest span at the time of its construction (48.70 m). It was constructed on the banks of the Adige by Cangrande II della Scala in 1354 in order to defend Verona’s people and also to have a possible escape-route northwards where his Austrian relatives lived. If you look at it closely, the Ponte Scaligero, with its red-brick walls and soaring arches, is asymmetrical and slopes down towards the Adige’s left bank, so as to facilitate a quick “get-away” to the country-side.
