    Built between 1354 and 1376 (although rebuilt in 1945 after being destroyed by retreating Gemans in WWii), it effectively formed part of the defence of the Castelvecchio. The bridge links the Arsenal on the north bank of the River Adige with the rest of the town.

    The bridge was constructed for defensive reasons, but it is also a very beautiful work, and a middle age Engineering master piece. Its biggest arch is 48 meters big.
    The bridge has suffered many modifications, and it was almost completely destroyed in the Second World War (and soon later faithfully reconstructed)

    Built in the late 1300's. It was blown up by the Germans in WW II. The river was carefully dredged to recover as much of the original masonry and the bridge was painstakingly restored.

    Another highlight in Verona, though rebuilt after the world war ii destructions. Fantastic views of the city from its sides.
