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.
