ponte romano sul velino
The downtown streets of Rieti host the ruins of the Roman bridge which now lies on the river Velino. The bridge was built in Roman times, around the third century BC and led to the center of the city, the old forum now Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II. In the first century. A.D. was restored and later in the Middle Ages was also fitted with a sort of gate-toweron that served as a fortification, to better control the trade and commerce. Due to the low height over the water level, the bridge underwent various damage in the course of time. For this reason it was thought several times to demolish the bridge to facilitate the flow of the river. This demolition took place during the '30s and the bridge was left lying along the river Velino from which emerges at times even today. It was thought then to replace it with a ferroconcrete structure but this was destroyed during the Second World War. After the war the bridge was rebuilt once again with the appearance we see today. To visit the Roman Bridge in Rieti you can park nearby. In this regard, we suggest parking Oberdan-Mazzini, located adjacent Piazza Mazzini. Here you can leave your vehicle for as long as necessary to enjoy the wonderful charm that invites you to Rieti.
