The Ponte di Pietra or Ponte Pietra (Italian for "Stone Bridge"; once known as Pons Marmoreus) is a Roman arch bridge crossing the Adige River in Verona, Italy, which was completed in 100 BC. The Via Postumia passed on it.

It originally flanked another Roman bridge, Pons Postumius; both the structures led to the nearby Roman Theater. The arcade nearest to the righ bank of the Adige was rebuilt in 1298 by Alberto della Scala.

Foure arches of the bridge were destroyed by retreating German troops in World War II and rebuilt in 1957 with original materials.
