Ponte Vecchio ( old bridge ) is famous for the goldsmiths shops and is one of the major spots in Florence.
Built and rebuilt many times due to floodings, the bridge spans the Arno river at its narrowest point where it is believed that a bridge was first built in Roman times.
The Arno river quietly passes through Florence, a marvelous jewel surrounded by the Tuscany hills.
Medieval buildings face the river from both banks.
Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) on the left.
Duomo (cathedral) on the right.
Palazzo Vecchio (old Palace), originally called the “Palazzo della Signoria” after the Signoria of Florence, the ruling body of the Republic of Florence, in the center.
This is probably the best view of Florence you can get.
