Via Flaminia - Cantiano Bridge
The Cantiano Bridge Ponte Grosso on the ancient roman road Via Flaminia has two arches, crossing the River Burano. It is still in use today. There are five ancient Roman bridges on the Via Flaminia in this area. The modern SP3 highway roughly follows the route of the ancient Via Flaminia, but in many places there is a smaller road called Via Flaminia that follows the actual route.

Driving north-east on the SP3 in the direction of Fano, drive past Cantiano. About 3 km after the exit for Cantiano Nord you come to an exit marked "Ponte di epoca Romana". Take this exit, turn right and drive back parallel to the SP3 until you come to the bridge. The road you are on goes over the ancient Roman bridge.
