Highlights: Legend has it that townspeople, enraged by the exile of the beloved Tarquino, threw harvested grain here to form the island. Later, Aesculapio, the god of medicine, turned into a snake and built a temple. The church of San Bartomeo is now built on the site of the shrine, next to a modern hospital. This legend is still circulating to this day. The island is in the shape of a boat, and the southern end is built with an oviris in the shape of a mast. Many poets come to this small island to create works in order to escape the noise of the city. In some parts of the ivy-covered buildings and bare walls, you can see steles transported from the ruins of ancient Rome. The Ponte de Cestio on the right bank was built in 60 BC and rebuilt in 365 with stones from the theatre of Machiro. The Fabrizio Bridge on the Left Bank has hardly changed since the park was built in 62. After passing here, almost directly in front is the Marchello Theater.
