The Milvio Bridge is one of the city's most popular attractions. Throughout almost its entire existence, it was a significant defensive structure. The bridge was thrown across the Tiber, through which the Flaminian Way passed, connecting Rome with the city of Ariminum.
In 312 AD. on the bridge, a battle took place between Constantine and Maxentius. In 538, during a battle between Belisarius's Byzantine expeditionary force and the Goths, the bridge was partially destroyed. In 1335, during the Orsini armed conflicts, the bridge was again thoroughly destroyed. In 1849, Garibaldi's army completely destroyed the bridge. The bridge was completely rebuilt in 1870.
