ponte garibaldi

Built in 1884, Ponte Garibaldi connects Trastevere to the centro storico and the Renaissance Jewish ghetto. The bridge was remodeled in 1953 and added with the more linear and stark railing parapets.

Ponte Garibaldi overlooks to the east, the Isola Tiberina, Rome's only island on the Tiber, home to the Fatebenefratelli public hospital, the San Bartolomeo Basilica and several very interesting restaurants...
