Crossing this bridge, you get a good view of the River Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. You cross from the historic part of Florence to the Oltrano part to visit the sights in that part of town. Nice.

The bridge is named after the ancient church in its vicinity and it is the oldest elliptic arch bridge in the world, with three thirty-meters wide arches. The bridge was built in the 16th century, designed by Bartolomeo Ammannati, the famous Florentine architect.

The perfect spot to finish your mini tour around Piazza Santa Trinita is the bridge. Spend the evening watching the sunset over the city, bring your camera to capture the amazing colors, and enjoy some of the most picturesque sights you have ever seen.

This bridge is the best one to get into situation and make photos to Ponte Vecchio. You will have it in front of you. When you see the water is pretty calmed. You will feel like in a film.
