A must see site to photograph and to walk across. A lot of great jewelry stores, buskers, and tourists (like us)!

A lovely bridge with some nice shops and good for photos. It is very busy but worth the visit. The view from the bridge is good as well.

will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
