Ponte Vecchio Florence
Ponte Vecchio is one of the oldest symbols of the city, known all over the world and appreciated for its strong suggestive.
It was built for the first time in Roman times, the narrowest point where the Arno crosses the Florentine territory. Destroyed and rebuilt several times, is today an example of architecture, thanks to the innovation of three large arched crossings lowered.
One of its features is the presence, on the promenade, two rows of craft shops, overlooking the city center and located in arcades, a real cult for all the tourists struggling with shopping.Our romantic bed and breakfast in Florence is just half a mile from its borders, once defined by four towers, destroyed during World War II. Of those that survive of Marinelli and rebuilt tower of Rossi-looking.
The bridge is topped by beautiful Vasari Corridor, built to allow the Medici to move from the Palazzo Vecchio to the Pitti residence, escaping to the streets of the village. In front of it, here is the monument to the goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini.
