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.
The Roman Forum was the very centre of ancient Rome. Throughout the lifespan of Roman civilisation the Forum served as the focus of political, civic and religious life.
The Temples of the Forum Boarium are two of the best preserved Roman temples to have survived from the Republican era.
