The old Roman bridge provides a very picturesque setting that is well worth a visit for a few photos. In the early evening, the light is lovely and reflections on the water contribute to nice images.

Trajan's Bridge is a very well preserved Roman Bridge still in use. It doesn't cost much time to visit, but is well worth a small half hour. The view of the river and town from the bridge is nice and one can get more of...More
