Reach ponte di tiberio in 19 minutes by car
The distance from hotel aurea: 7.5 km
This is one of the things I adore about Rimini, the Ponte di Tiberio (Tiberius’ Bridge). It is simply spectacular and more than two thousand years old!
Its construction began under the Emperor Augustus in 14 BC and ended in 21 AD under the Emperor Tiberius. It was the first part of the Via Emilia and is the element that is stylized in the coat of arms of the Local Council of Rimini. It is a true symbol.
And how can we not talk about the Piazza sull’Acqua (the Piazza on the Water) situated right on the basin of the Ponte di Tiberio? This is the final part in the direction of the Parco XXV Aprile (known to the people of Rimini as Parco Marecchia).When you visit Ponte di Tiberio you can choose to stop here for a drink – and maybe also taste a bread roll with mortadella – or enjoy the shade of the tree and the rest of the green. And then, the park seems made just for families because it is full of games and attractions that are also suitable for the youngest children.
Maybe I say this also because I was born and raised in these parts but it is a part of Rimini that is truly spectacular. And I admit I am a little biased because I was even married in these quarter of the city – in Borgo San Giuliano – but I assure you that spending a half hour or so sitting here is a precious experience.
See you soon!
