We loved this bridge. We visited on a sunny November afternoon so although there were other visitors coming & going, we were able to stand there alone at the top, looking down to the riverbank. Legend has it that the builder couldn't finish it in...More

This bridge was amazing. Walking up it was really fun. But the express train passed on the bank on the other side and blew his horn and startled me. But laughed afterwards. Good story behind history of the bridge. The fall colors of the leaves...More

We only visited because our guide had a little extra time and suggested it. It’s an amazing bridge in a beautiful location ...steeped in history. Doesn’t take long to see this site... and I don’t think you will find a quainter medieval devils bridge anywhere

Nice place to stop when you are passing. Not realy worth a long detour. Count 15min for the visit. Make sure to get to the bridge on the Via del Brennero, here you can park your car. Tricky to park at the other side !!!

This historic bridge is an amazing feat of engineering, well worth a quick visit. It's in a beautiful setting, especially on a clear sunny day, as the mirroring effect on the still water creates stunning photo opportunities! That said, whatever the weather, this bridge is...More
