Nice views from gere

A lovely spot to get your photo taken with the river in the background and the way to a little shopping street with the one of the best gelato shops.

It's a bridge with expensive jewelry shops and ice cream stalls on both ends. The "views" from the bridge are much less exciting than anything else you see in Florence. The density of pickpockets is very high here, so beware! Ice cream is cheaper on the side of the Palazzo Pitti. It's a building, which happens to be a bridge... More

This is the most beautiful place in Florence, a place where you can hear buskers from all over the world. Just sitting down on the footpath and listening to some of the world's best music. You never know who you might be lucky to listen to, and to top that the most beautiful view of Florence One of the most... More

If you are interested in buying over-priced jewellry, then this is the place to come. Otherwise, give it a miss, there are lots of other places in Florence to visit which are more rewarding.

An astounding historical bridge with a stack of jewellery shops. Still standing after centuries despite floods, wars and the ravages of time.

Easy walking distance from most central hotels. There are a large number of jewellery shops And all are top quality. Over the bridge there are plenty of food outlets and more shops! This is one of the must visits in Vienna and is original... The only bridge not destroyed across the river in WW2.

Wonderful to see this historic bridge in person. Unfortunately the river underneath is not the cleanest but still well worth a visit. Charming!

Lovely to wonder, busy but worth a trip, we walked over the next bridge first and took some photos, in the peace and quiet then wandered the streets around and saw some great places and sights

Ponte vecchio is a nice place to visit, but full of shops. The houses are not very well maintained and give a little decadent appearance to the entire place. Anyway it needs to be visited in Florence as a must. I can't say that if I couldn't visit it it would be very bad; in Florence there are a lot... More

Visit during the night, sit down and listen to the music being played by one of the singers. You will not regret. Very romantic for couples ;-)
