Via Flaminia - Pontericcioli Bridge

The Pontericcioli Bridge (Pontericcioli Ponte Tre Archi) on the ancient Roman road Via Flaminia is outside of Pontericcioli near Cantiano, close to the Umbrian border. In this area the modern road does not follow the route of the ancient Via Flaminia. Outside of Pontericcioli you first come to a small two arch bridge called Ponte Grosso (several Roman bridges in this area have the same name, which translates to Big Bridge). Further along the road is an archaeological area with the larger, three arch bridge.

The SS3 in Umbria becomes the SP3 in Le Marche. On the SP3 heading north-east direction Fano, just before the town sign for Pontericcioli, there is a left turn signed Area Archeologica on the road Via Flaminia Antica. Turn left and go down to the first river. The bridge over the river is an ancient Roman bridge. You can park and walk into the field to see it.

Keep driving on that road and go uphill until the road turns sharply right. On your left you see a sign for the Archaeological Area. Park here and walk about 500 meters into the site. There is some exposed ancient road and the three arched bridge, Ponte Tre Archi.
