Overview

Built at the end of the 19th Century by architects Angelo Vescovali and Augusto Polidori near the remains of the old Ponte Rotto, close to Isola Tiberina (Tiber Island), Ponte Palatino connects the Ripa and Trastevere districts, creating a walkway between the Aventino and Alberteschi riverside roads. Made mostly out of iron with travertine marble decorations, Palatino Bridge extends for a total of 155 meters (509 feet) and is also known as Ponte Inglese (English Bridge), thanks to the choice to drive your car in the opposite direction.
