This is a fortified bridge in Verona, going over the Adige River. It was built by by Cangrande II della Scala, to cross the river. The ponte has many holes to look through on the way over.

The views of the castle and the city are great at night. It is also more peaceful than during the day when it is full of tourists.

Impressive architecture, nice views down the river and of the castle - lovely to wander across. I imagine it might get crowded in summer but at the end of October it was a delightful amble!

This bridge goes from the castle to the other side of the river. Very impressive. It was hard to believe it was totally rebuilt after the war because it looks so authentic.
