A wonderful medieval bridge with shops on it! Offers beautiful views of the river below. Has a wonderful romantic air to it. True all bridge are romantic but this one's certainly special, perhaps it's all the jewellers or the fact that it's so old perhaps.

I've wanted to see Ponte Vecchio since I first heard about it in school. The bridge is very special! It was nice strolling and watching the jeweller's windows when the sun was setting - very romantic place.

This place is a must if you want to experience the culture of the people of Florence! There are tons of tourists, small shops (both, the modest and high-end). Don't leave Florence without checking this place out!

A must for all those visiting Florence. A very beautiful old bridge, very European looking. Love the way the bridge reflects off the water, just like you see in all the photos. Plenty of shops and markets along and near the bridge. We spent an afternoon strolling through here.

Didn't lock any hearts up here, but did enjoy shopping and having a bite to eat. One of those don't-miss places that costs you nothing to visit.

from the nice hallways on the sunny day, thousands of lockers showed the love, promises and cares of people on the bridge of the goldsmiths

This bridge is a must-see and a hub of activity in Florence. We saw a cool puppet show and several other street performers as well as stunning jewelry and artisan-made goods on display and for sale in the stores located on the bridge. Located close to pretty much everything of interest in Florence, you will be passing by this place... More
