Have walked and cycled across this bridge which is very unusual in its construction. There are plenty of bars and resteraunts around the area to relax and enjoy the ambience of the area.

Visited this beautiful bridge during a trip to Fornoli. Stunning views either side of the water and very well maintained. Clean, peaceful. Fornoli has some nice places for coffee ice cream etc also. Worth a visit if in area.

This bridge stands majestic in Fornoli which is part of Bagni di Lucca. The architect is Lorenzo Notolini and it was built between 1844 and 1860 it straddles over the River Lima. This is in fact a suspension bridge built in iron and stone and the architect was ordered to visit England to view similar bridges built in that way. The chain mechanism is very complex and the tension is held underground .this bridge prides itself of two triumphal arches. Sadly though it no longer carries vehicles but is mainly pedestrian. There is various folklore that surrounds this bridge and Festivals such as the 5 yearly Festone which is a kind of thanksgiving on the 1st Sunday of September in favour of the Madonna delle Grazie also the 1st Sunday in May is held the Spring Fair. There are several other events such as musical jazz events that I have attended there in the past.

Tucked away but worth finding. The bridge is now pedestrian only but beautifully constructed with lovely views of the river. Well worth a visit.

Visiting the Bagni di Luca area, it is well worth a stop here in Fornoli. The bridge has an interesting history and a great view. Then you can pop round the corner to Cafe Catene!

We passed this by while staying in Bagni di Lucca, it certainly is a interesting bridge, but is in need of some maintenance as the boards and hand rails have seen better days.

This bridge arises when you pass through Forloni. It is old and imposing with big arches and cables. The walking board is old and needs restoration as it bends when walking across. There is not much else to do in town so nice to check out but you're done in 5-10 mins max!
