Ponte Vecchio, Florence

The most famous bridge on the river Arno is the 14th century arched ‘Old Bridge’ Ponte Vecchio that houses goldsmiths, jewelry workshops and the Signoria open arched gallery.

The most famous bridge on the river Arno is the 14th century arched ‘Old Bridge’ Ponte Vecchio that houses goldsmiths, jewelry workshops and the Signoria open arched gallery. At the northern end of the bridge is a covered colonnade, which was built as a secret passageway for the Medicis as they walked between the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace. The original occupants were butchers who discarded their scraps into the Arno, which gave rise to such stench that the Medicis could not bear it, so the Grand Duke Ferdinando I ordered them to move out and invited the goldsmiths to move in. This is the only bridge on the Arno that wasn’t destroyed by the Nazis during World War II, and looks fabulous during sunset.
