Milvian Bridge

Milvian Bridge

As early as republican times, a Milvian Bridge was built across the Tiber in the northern part of the city on the extension of Via Flaminia from the  Roman Forum and  Piazza del Popolo. It had to be reconstructed in 109 BC: at the end of the 3rd century AD, a guard tower was added as part of the city fortifications. At the beginning of the 19th century, Pope Pius VII ordered a rebuilding; however, the bridge was blown up by Garibaldi’s soldiers in 1849 in order to stop the advance of French troops. One year later, today’s bridge was constructed under Pope Pius IX.
