Tiber Island is an island in the middle of the Tiber River in Rome connected to the city by two bridges, Ponte Fabricio and Ponte Cestio. Early on it was the site of a Temple of Aesculapius built in 293 BC in response to a plague. It has remained a place of healing and isolation. A hospital remains on the island. In addition to the hospital, the island is the site of the Basilica di San Bartolomeo all'Isola founded at the end of the 10th by the by Holy Roman Emperor Otto III. The basilica was built over the site of the Temple of Aesculapius.
