Historic bridge in Central Turin
Jul 2020 • Solo
Ponte Vittorio Emanuele I is a historic bridge that crosses the Po River in Central Turin. There originally was a wooden bridge on the site of the current bridge which was forever needing to be repaired so a new stone bridge was constructed but was completely destroyed in 1706 by a flood. Turin was under the reign of Napoleon at the time and he ordered a new bridge to be built, the new bridge was completed in 1813. After the city was liberated from Napoleon the bridge was meant to be demolished but King Vittorio Emanuele I prevented this from happening and the bridge was ultimately named after him. I visited the bridge when I was in the city in July 2020, it is not a must-see but worth viewing whilst in the immediate vicinity.

Great bridge to see the river
May 2017
The Po River goes all over the city of Turin. From here you will have a very nice view of the river. I strongly recommend you to come here at night, it is a very unique and romantic place.

..a stone bridge that connects paizza Vittorio to the "Collina"
Dec 2016 • Friends
A relatively small stone bridge, dressed with geraniums in the summer, it connect piazza Vittorio Veneto in its immensity to the Church of the Gran Madre di Dio that acts a backdrop, and from there with the hills of Turin, "La Collina". To the East, a damn that holds the Po river and rises its water level. To the West, the slightly higher Po that continues on toward the tall tower of the Trauma Center (CTO). From the bridge, one can get access to the Murazzi, a series of bars and night clubs at the center of Saturday nights' life, the so-called "movida".

The oldest bridge in Turin
Jul 2017
This bridges was built by Napoleon. When finally the king come back he decided to keep the bridge and to build the church "Gran Madre di Dio". From it you can see beautiful landscape. It is very romantic! I put a photo of the bridge in 1820.

Stone bridge

Crossing over the River Po at the bottom end of Piazza Vittorio Veneto is the lovely early nineteen century stone bridge, Ponte Vittorio Emanuele I, named after the King of the same name.

Not as pretty as Charle's Bridge, but still spectacular

The Ponte Vittorio Emanuele I bridge is the major bridge that crosses the Po river.
It is quite a magnificent sight and is worth taking pics of.
There are also a few plaques worth examining if you are fluent in Italian.

Lovely bridge
Jul 2015 • Solo
At the end of Via Po is this bridge. It has such a great backdrop of the hills on one side and the large piazza on the other. It is very photogenic and a great place to take photos at the end of the day in the late afternoon sun.

Ordinary Bridge

I did not find the Ponte Vittorio Emanuele I very attractive. It is a bridge that crosses the River Po, but I did not find anything beautiful in the design of the bridge. The views of the river and the river bank were quite good.

Amazing view.

The fantastic panoramic view that provides this bridge is superb, located after Piazza Vittorio Veneto, beyond the bridge you can visit the equally beautiful church of Holy Mother. The view of the river Po is charming and romantic. A visit of even five minutes is due.

One of two ancient bridges across the Po in Turin..
Jul 2014 • Couples
One would think that Emanuele Bridge would be the the start to the grand Corso Emanuele; but no , the Umberto Bridge does this and Emanuele Bridge opens up The grand via Po, so not only is it a lovely crossing to be photographed and admired, but it marks the commencement of possibly Turin's most interesting Street. All in all , checking out this bridge, it's environs and then strolling up the Via Po will account for much of your day. Turin is not a City to rush through in a day. { or even two ] We are here for a week and wondering how ever we are to take everything in !!. Of course the bridges sandwich in boat trip operator Naviboat, so most will be eager to do this trip which will account for another couple of hours.[ they cost Euros 6 and stop off at the Castello de Valentino [ no not the legendary great lover ]
