213 reviews of Ponte Vecchio

an important historical landmark

This is an important historical landmark, situated in the Italian city of Florence (Tuscany). The Ponte Vecchio is the only bridge in Florence that was not destroyed during the occupation of Italy in World War II, which it is said is because of the orders given by Hitler. At the beginning of its existence, it connected the historical buildings on both sides of the river Arno, the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti. There were butchers shops which then had to leave in the year 1593 in order to increase the prestige of the bridge. Then jewelers and gold dealers set up their shops there, continuing this tradition until today.

Old bridge

This famous bridge connects both banks of the Arno River in Florence and is filled with goldsmiths and jewelers, who came to replace old shops which were devoted to meat and seasoned fish. Due to the smell, King Ferdinand I made it pass into the hands of goldsmiths and jewelers. It's worth taking a stroll at any time of day by the banks of the Arno, but the late afternoon has a special beauty.
