The best you can do: get an ice-cream on the teatre-side of the bridge (first little street after the main steet that leads to the river), and cross the bridge with your icecream. rest a little in the middle of the bridge and enjoy this peaceful moment.

What a fantastic structure, I loved the Scala Family crinellation trademark swallow tails. Fantastic views of the river Adige and other city landmarks.

This bridge was amazing to walk along, the views off the river and over looking Verona was amazing, especially in the evening when the sun was setting, you are an,e to climb some points of the bridge if you are brave enough to get further great views.

Verona itself is a surprisingly Picturesque, Romantic, Peaceful City. It is no wonder why Shakespeare chose Verona as the inspiration for the romantic tale of Romeo and Juliet. The bridge and its view over the river is really romantic. Went in the evening during sunset. It was less crowded and photos are beautiful with the sunset!

This is an awesome place...you can walk from the castle to the other side and have a wonderful view on that part of Verona. The view on its "belvedere" points is amazing and luckily completely free. It's a nice walk, somehow the bridge itself is romantic :)

from the old brick castle of Scaligero family you can walk across Adige river with a beautiful view on Alps mountains in sunny days. Worth trying!

Seems ancient but it is just 50 years old. Were the bricks original or have they had to age them? The views of the River are great.

Yes, it is a bridge....with a difference ! When built, it was meant for the Scaligeri ( Cangrande & Mastino!...they must have been a treat to know) to have a quick escape on the other side of the Fiume Adige in case of trouble by the Venitians. This is why it could only be accessed by the inhabitants of the... More

Part of this bridge is the original Roman structure beautifully blended with the modern 15th century addition!
