Overview

Tiberina Island is linked to the banks of the river by two bridges, the Fabricio and Cestio. Today, in order to protect Tiberina from the current, the 'bows' have been extended right up to one of the pillars of the Garibaldi bridge. Some ancient buildings can still be seen, like the Caetani tower dating to the Middle Ages, and the church of San Bartolomeo that was built on the site of the temple of Esculapius. Unfortunately nothing is left of the 10th-century church as it was almost entirely rebuilt in the 17th Century.
