This bridge has plenty of intersting history and serves as a reference point when visiting Florence. The bridge is best viewed from a distance and is spectacular at night.
amazing atmosphere, beautifull view of the river and the city, a bit crowded during weekends but worth a long walk at night. Funny jewerly store all along, not interesting stuff but great windows.
Very pretty bridge, with some interesting history. Perhaps better seen from afar as it gets packed with tourists taking pictures and perusing the many jewellery shops lining each side of the street.
It's fine, and you kind of have to do it, but unless you're shopping for gold, use it for transportation to the other side of the river. There are other bridges with better views.

I never tire of seeing this bridge in the same way I view the Rialto Bridge in Venice. So much history, with a mixture of real-life. You can photograph it from many angles at various times of the day and night. There's plenty of street vendors close by for a browse as well.

The Ponte Vecchio bridge is definitely worth a visit while in Florence- it is unique, charming and full of history. The bridge itself gets very busy during the day but it is lovely to walk over. Plenty of opportunities to look in the windows of the many jewellers' shops! It's also nice to take a look at the bridge from... More
When you visit Florence, a walk along the Arno is a must. The Ponte Vecchio is a famous tourist attraction that should not be missed. Window shopping and people watching are exciting for the non-shopper. There are many boutiques for the serious gold buyer.
