You can pull up at the side of the road just before this bridge as there are parking spaces. The bridge and surroundings are stunning and make a great photo or backdrop for a photo. The bridge is quite steep to climb (I think one...More

Authentic sight to see and walk along without the tourist hectic rush. It is a pleasant time spend around. We did not pay any entry fee.

Definitely worth a stop, but I wouldn’t detour far just to see it. It’s a steep walk up to the top that I wouldn’t try in the wet.

Great photo op of rural Tuscany. Free parking at beginning of bridge but always seems full. Take a walk across. History: One of few bridges not blown up by Germans during WWII.

Made a point of visiting this landmark, which may seem odd as it's just a bridge. But it is quite special being so old and well preserved. The walk to the apex is quite demanding, it felt a lot steeper than the picture. Wonderful views...More
