place to see with the environment

The Ponte Scalier and his environment at both embarkments have to be visit and walked around. In a sunny day it is just superb.

Right next to (and really part of) the castelvecchio is a short bridge, the Ponte Scaligero. The views are good from the bridge, but in my mind the real attraction is the bridge itself. Reconstructed after is suffered severe damage in WWII, the bridge is a gem. (try it at night too) If you have kids, watch the middle as... More

The bridge is nice per se, but the view from the bridge not so special. However the walk along the river in springtime with the flowers is not bad.

A very old bridge, from medieval era. Completely made of red bricks. Like a fortification, linked to Castelvecchio. Very good place for taking pictures from many different sigths. A nice walking trip with family.

I did not take the noted tour, our DINEWITHRANA.COM tour was private.... this was one of the tour stops. It was great, as you can see either side of the river and get some great shots. The history of this bridge is unique.... as an escape for the current "ruler".... if all does not work out.... create an escape route.... More

It's free, not part of the castle tour. Make sure you cross at different times of day to get different views of the city. Definitely the best bridge in the city!

Visited Verona as part of our wedding aniversary celebration. Wonderful city, even though the weather was not too good to us all the time. So much atmosphere, so much history, so much to see.

Very appealing structure with its Ghibelline swallowtail brick merlons, built by Cangrande as a 14th Century fortified route and escape from Castelvecchio. Although the French destroyed the tower on the far bank in Napoleonic times, the bridge survived until retreating Germans destroyed it entirely in 1945. Reconstruction in the following years was an exceptional achievement. With 3 spans of differing... More
