Ponte Vecchio

Ponte Vecchio is the oldest and most famous bridge in Florence, one of the most popular symbol of the city in the world


The first crossover in the area dates back to Roman era, but the bridge was built in 1345, as we see it today, after a violent flood destroyed the previous one. 


In the sixteenth century the architect Giorgio Vasari enriched it with the famous Vasari Corridor, which connects Palazzo Vecchio to Palazzo Pitti.


Today Ponte Vecchio, with the typical craft shops and goldsmiths, is one of the most beloved and visited places of Florence. 


There are numerous hotels in the area that offer a wonderful view over the Arno and allow you to enjoy a stay in the heart of Florence.
