Ponte Maggio

There are several bridges crossing the Lima River in Bagni di Lucca, but Ponte Maggio which crosses to Casoli is probably the prettiest.

The river looks very inviting from the bridge. I went down to the water here last year and dipped my toes in. I was very tempted to dive in.

It was a bit cool on my recent visit, but I’m sure this bit of the river will be popular when the weather warms up.

  1. These are lovely photos of Ponte Maggio. I live in the very next village Ponte Coccia and so I very often cross here en route up to Casoli. Such a pretty spot, I agree, and in mid summer I truly recommend a dip in the Lima just beneath the bridge there!!! Bravery much needed however, even in estate!!

  2. There used to be an old bridge where our mill is, it was called Ponte Vecchio and the locality across the river is still called that way.nthe old bridge was destroyed back in the 1730’s and was replaced around that time by the Ponte Nuovo, which still stands and takes us to the Post Office and downtown. There are very interesting bridges in the area.bi wish the Ponte Vecchio was still standing….
