Tiberius Bridge

Rimini - Centro storico

Once across the Cavour square and the lower part of Corso d’Augusto, cross the huge, five-arched Istrian stone bridge spanning the Marecchia River and leave “Roman” Rimini behind. The river, which was once called Ariminus, lent its name to the city and to the port.

Despite the fact that construction work on the bridge began under the rule of Augustus and was only completed by Tiberius (14-21 A.D.), as the inscription sculpted on the inner part of the two parapets states, it is known as Tiberius Bridge and marks the start of Via Emilia. 


How to get to the city center:
by car: Motorway A14 "Rimini Sud" Exit; straight ahead direction Rimini centro for about 3 km.
by train: from the railway station straight ahead (v.le Dante)
by air: bus n.9 - bus stop Arco d' Augusto or Railway Station buses and timetable
