Had a trip across the Tiber to visit the area of Trastevere on the south-west side of Rome. Isola Tiberina (Tiber Island) is located in the southern bend of the Tiber, and is boat-shaped, approximately 270 metres long and 67 metres wide. Being a seat of the ancient temple of Asclepius and later a hospital, the island is associated with medicine and healing.
Shown here from the west bank, on the left is the Ponte Cestio which dates back to the 1st century. However, in the 19th century as the western channel of the river was widened from 48 to 76 metres, the bridge had to be demolished and rebuilt. The ancient bridge, which had two small arches, was simply not long enough. A new bridge, with three large arches, was constructed with its central arch reusing about two-thirds of the original material.

We must re-visit Rome to explore those sights we missed a few years back. Your historical notes are most interesting.

Stunning viewpoint to choose Trev, was there about twenty years ago when some German students jumped off this bridge, I understand there is only a small area that is deep enough to do this, they were arrested, great processing again my friend.

Regards

Trev.

Quite a few ancient bridges have been enlarged over time, Elvet Bridge in Durham being a well-known case in point. Somehow they manage to retain their air of great age even if only a fragment of the original survives.
An excellent foreword whose quality is matched only by the quality of your photograph. Excellent!

A lovely image and a great view across the water. Looks as if there's an encampment on the far bank. I'm guessing restaurant rather than marauders!
