Owner description: 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.

This was our fourth time to the bridge and it always entertains. First, the view approaching the bridge is the best with its multiple spans and lined with shops. Take your camera. The bridge itself has been jammed crowded every time we have been there but its a great experience. Check everything out from end to end, its fun. I would say to watch your valuables or leave what you can in the hotel or better yet, home. We have never had any kind of an incident here.

Yes it was cool to visit the famous Ponte Vecchio but the other bridges are prettier. Take a walk across and get some beautiful photos.

When you walk up to it, wouldn't know it was a bridge , just another heaving street with loads of jewellery shops

Surprised by the selection of jewelry! Wow, it was overwhelming. This place is very crowded including the store displays...difficult to get to see everything!

Probably best viewed from a distance as it purely jewellery shops and crowds of people marvelling the bling. Some open spaces for photo opportunities but best to avoid stopping on it too long unless there's s break in the people traffic.
