  • The Ponte Vecchio is one of the symbols of the city of Florence and one of the most famous bridges in the world. Anyone visiting Florence cannot miss an evening stroll on the Ponte Vecchio. At night, in fact, when the wooden doors of the shops close and make them seem like chests, the atmosphere on the bridge becomes even more suggestive and romantic and cannot really be lost!
  • Truly a magnificent place. Remarkable to look at and to walk through to experience. The places inside were cute. The river is lovely. Had a marvelous time here. The entire area is truly luxurious. I didn't want to leave any of it. I recommend anyone in the World that can visit this wonderful city.
