about Ponte Rotto
Ponte Rotto, originally known as Pons Aemilius is Rome’s oldest, albeit defunct, stone bridge.
Built in the second century BC to replace its wooden predecessor, Ponte Rotto, meaning the “broken bridge” is indeed missing most of its original structure.
Today, only an arch remains of Ponte Rotto, worth seeing if you are passing nearby.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Ponte Rotto is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past. If you know of any information on this page that needs updating you can add a comment above or now.
