You have to see this bridge yourself to appreciate it. Try to be there away from holiday time when it's not so crowded . Charming but rather expensive jewelry shops all along the bridge but you really go for the view. Originally built in 1218 but rebuilt 1345 it still retains it old charm. Florence is a beautiful city and the Ponte Vecchio is a must see . These pictures are the view from the bridge
Love it!!! It's very romantic place when you can enjoy at beautiful moments .... Perfect to walk in a sunny afternoon... Drinking some wine.. or eat some cheese and ham...this landscape seems like a famous paint.. in really life... I'm recommend you visit this place always!!!!!
