This 3rd century BC bridge was built by Roman hands and has required very little maintenance since then.
They just don’t make them like they used to!
The original bridge was known as the ‘Ponte del Arcobaleno’ (Rainbow Bridge) for its obvious arching shape and was one of the few crossing over the very deep and very dangerous Fiora River.
Today it adds to the mystery and intrigue of ancient Vulci, but you could say that most people just stand here and admire the incredible views of the Viterbese countryside and roaring river below.
