Some bridges will do anything to get into the news

Pity the poor Milvian Bridge. Being the site of the historic battle between Constantine and Maxentius has not been enough to make it a first-rate tourist site in Rome.

But never underestimate the power and motivation of an ancient monument to stay in the foreground. After all, the ancient Seven Wonders are still in the minds of millions even though just about all of them are ruinous. (And that's being charitable.) You think that's a fluke?

So now the Milvian Bridge has become the Bridge of Love.
