The Castel Vecchio Bridge (Italian: Ponte di Castel Vecchio) or Scaliger Bridge (Italian: Ponte Scaligero) is a fortified bridge in Verona, northern Italy, over the Adige River. The segmental arch bridge featured the world's largest span at the time of its construction (48.70 m).
It was built (most likely in 1354-1356) by Cangrande II della Scala, to grant him a safe way of escape from the annexed eponymous castle in the event of a rebellion of the population against his tyrannic rule. The solidity of the construction allowed it to resist untouched until, in the late 18th century, the French troops destroyed the tower on the left bank (although it probably dated from the occupation of Verona by the Visconti or the Republic of Venice).

Castle Vecchio Bridge is a beautiful medieval bridge that connects Verona Centro to Borgo Trento at the Austrian Arsenale.. The bridge has great views of Castel Vecchio and the city. It was the escape route for the Scaglier family to their family strongholds north of Verona. It is a beautiful place to walk and take in the souther side of Verona centro.

Greatly preserved bridge. It's not as famous as the one in Florence, but it's not the same purpose. This bridge had a military purpose.

One of the beautiful places in Verona. Massively underrated City by Tourists in Italy. Very nice people. Safe place and great hotels + restaurants. Calm and quiet, historic, clean and most of all, stunning.
