Arch of Augustus

Having crossed the central Piazza Cavour and traveled along the other half of Corso d'Augusto to the north, you leave "Roman" Rimini via a large bridge with five arches, made of Istrian stone, which allows you to cross the Marecchia, the ancient Ariminus, the river that gave the town its name and its port.

This bridge is called Tiberius, but it was begun by Augustus and completed by Tiberius (14-21 AD), as documented by the inscription carved with slight variations on the two internal fronts of the parapet. It marks the beginning of Via Emilia.
