Florence - Ponte Vecchio

Once we had checked in at the hotel we walked further into the city towards the Ponte Vecchio the bridge over the Arno.  The bridge is full of jewellers and goldsmith shops it is quite a sight. 

The following are views from the Ponte Vecchio looking up and down the Arno.

  1. Very beautiful/scenic. And quite a surprise to see that bridge and hear about the jewellers: I'm just loading up my Wiltshire holiday album and looked up some details on Pulteney Bridge in Bath and Wiki tells me that it is one of only 4 bridges worldwide that have shops acorss their whole span. I wonder if the Ponte Veccio is also one...
