Ponte Dei Salti, Switzerland

The bridge ‘Ponte Romano’ also called ‘Ponte Dei Salti’ crosses the Verzasca River in Lavertezzo in the Ticino region of Switzerland.

The typical medieval bridge is made of stone and while most travelers take pictures, some dive off this bridge into the clear emerald waters below.

Ticino is the southern canton of Switzerland and is greatly influenced by Italian food and language due their proximity to each other. Milan airport is only 1 hour by road from Lugano in Switzerland.
