Some of the most iconic travel images worldwide are of bridges.
The Golden Gate Bridge is amongst the most photographed bridges in the world and on many travelers’ itineraries when visiting San Francisco.
Sant Angelo Bridge spanning the Tiber River in Rome is pedestrian only. It was built in 134 AD long before the automobile was invented.
Some Bridges are pilgrimages for travelers not because of their architectural appeal but for their historical significance. Freedom Bridge in Paju, South Korea was used to repatriate POWs returning from the North.
More than 5,000 people walk across the Brooklyn Bridge every day, many of them tourists. It rivals the Golden Gate in terms of being the most photographed in the world.
