Ponte Vecchio is an old bridge built during Medieval times which extends over the Arno river in Florence.  The bridge is often filled with locals, tourists, and entertainers which all together create a lively atmosphere. 

Ponte Vecchio happens to be the oldest bridge in Florence dating back to 1345.  The bridge contains many shops that were used as workshops and commerce.  They were later converted into goldsmiths due to the amount of garbage that the shops produced.  However, today the shops are jewelry stores, ranging from moderately priced to high end. 

Located on top of the shops is the Vasari Corridor which was built by the Duke of Florence Cosimo I de’ Medici in the sixteenth century to link the Uffizi Gallery to the Pitti Palace. 

Ponte Vecchio is an ancient bridge that is a highlight for any visitor!  With great views of the Arno River and shopping, you cannot go wrong!
