The world's smallest inhabited island was home to a 3rd-century temple dedicated to Aesculapius, the Greek God of healing. The temple's columns now line the nave of Romanesque Chiesa di San Bartolomeo ( M01B5, A3;h09:00-12:30 & 15:30-18:00 Mon-Sun), while the remains of Rome's first stone bridge Ponte Rotto (Broken Bridge) are visible from island's south side.
