Erected during Roman times, this is the most ancient and photographed bridge in Florence, which is characterized by three arches and two wide arcades on each side housing the famous and unusual "botteghe" or shops.

The summer hasn't started and you can hardly get over the Ponte Vecchio without bumping into someone. Still very beautiful and a great view of the Arno. The jewelry shop windows are full of the most beautiful jewelry. Don't see a lot of people buying...More

It may not be the most impressive but a combination of the history and its uniqueness draws you in. And you can’t seem to forgot about it unlike other structures. You can view more clips if you search YouTube: GoPro: Ready, Set, Italia! (Venice, Florence,...More

The history behind this bridge is quite interesting, but the bridge itself is not a beautiful peace of architecture, not well taken care of. Just another market, only filled with jewelry stores all exhibiting same jewelry. Nothing unique to divine your mind.

It is worth it for the views, energy and feel of the area. The bridge itself is nothing special, but getting there and learning the history about it makes it worthwhile.

Approached the bridge from along the river where the view is good. It certainly takes your imagination back into history. The bridge is wall to wall jewellery shops with very old buildings. As with the whole of Florence we found it just too busy with...More

These days the shops are very upmarket but good for window shopping. The bridge is old and wide and offers good views of the river from the centre. On top of the bridge is the covered walkway from the palace to the government quarters.

I wasn't too impressed with the bridge, it was crowded, the shops were over priced, there was always someone performing in the middle which reduced the through way. It was prettier at night from a distance. A few touts around too and everyone clicking on...More
