For those seeking an accommodation in Rome, the area around Ponte Milvio is ideal for businessmen and tourists wishing to stay in their own apartment just next to the centre of the city.
The Ponte Milvio is a bridge built along the route of the Flaminia and Cassia streets, to cross the Tiber, outside the ancient city of Rome. The first mention of the bridge dates back to 207 BC, after the defeat of the Carthaginan army in the Battle of the Metaurus during the Second Punic war. The bridge at this stage had to be in wood, and its construction is owed to a Molvius (people who belong to Molvia, from which it takes its name). For some time now, it is customary for young lovers to put a padlock on one of the light posts in the centre of Ponte Milvio and to throw the key into the Tiber, thus making their love dreams indestructible. This tradition seems to have been started in Florence, where at the time, just before school leave, trainee officers from the Scuola di Sanità in Costa San Giorgio used to bind the locks from their lockers onto a metal bar over the parapet of the Vecchio Bridge. This tradition has passed on to the lovers throughout the years, and in Rome has been made very popular as a result of Federico Moccia’s book, in which the two main characters swear each other eternal love locking a padlock to the bridges’ central light post and throwing the key away. Well served by all means of public transport, one can find numerous tram, bus and metro stops in Ponte Milvio area (Euclide), that enable easy access to roughly all parts of the city.
