Ponte Vecchio is one of the symbols of Florence.
Built very close to the Roman crossing, the Old Bridge (Ponte Vecchio) was until 1218 the only bridge across the Arno in Florence. The current bridge was rebuilt after a flood in 1345.
There have been stores on the Ponte Vecchio since the 13th century. Initially, there were all types of shops, including butchers and fishmongers, but, in 1593, Ferdinand I decreed that only goldsmiths and jewellers be allowed to have their stores on the bridge. And so it is even now.
The pano was taken from Santa Trinita Bridge. To understand the position of the Ponte Vecchio in Florence is enough to look at one of the pano from Piazzale Michelangelo (for example pano 12000 or 14160).
