Before leaving the lucchesi hills, we stopped to see the famous medieval bridge built between 1080-1100, Ponte della Maddalena—known also as a Ponte del Diavolo along with many other bridges of its kind throughout Italy. It’s a picturesque spot looking over Serchio and perfect for a little walk to stretch your legs as you are traveling through the area. Although the bridge has been reconstructed over the last thousand years, it still amazes me the kind of engineering and creativity people had that long ago!
