Tiberius Bridge in Rimini
Tiberius Bridge in Rimini

Tiberius Bridge in Rimini is one of the oldest existing bridges in the world. This ancient Roman-era bridge dates back to the Roman Emperors Octavian Augustus and Tiberius. Construction of the bridge began during the reign of Emperor Octavian Augustus in 14 CE and was completed under Tiberius around 21 CE.

The Tiberius Bridge is not only one of the oldest but also one of the most durable Roman bridges. Its construction, consisting of five stone arcades, has survived for over 2,000 years, despite the passage of time, river erosion and numerous natural disasters.

The remarkable thing about this bridge is that it is still in use today. For centuries, it has served as an important link in Rimini’s road network, allowing residents and travelers to cross the Marecchia River. It is amazing that a structure that originated in antiquity still fulfills its original function in the modern era.

The Tiberius Bridge in Rimini is also an important landmark and tourist attraction. Tourists visiting this city have the opportunity to admire its architecture, historical significance and panoramic views of the surrounding area. It is a witness to Rimini’s long and rich history, dating back to ancient Rome.

Thanks to its ancient heritage and unique character, Rimini’s Tiberius Bridge remains an honorable example not only of Roman engineering but also as a reminder of the durability and strength of human creations that will stand the test of time.
