    The bridge and look out point on the river is really beautiful! I also recommend viewing from another bridge so that you can see the little houses!

    This is a sister bridge to Ponte Vecchio located to the northwest. It provides link between Oltrarno and the city centre near Basilica di Santa Trinita. Historically there have been bridge crossings at this location since the 13th-century. However, its most notable iteration was the Renaissance bridge constructed by Florentine architect Bartolomeo Ammannati (1567-1569).

    Sadly, Ammannati's masterpiece crossing was destroyed in 1944 by Germans retreating from Allied forces. It was rebuilt in 1958 by architect Riccardo Gizdulich, who used archive plans, images as well as as much original material, including parts recovered from the bed of the Arno in order to recreate Ammannati's grand bridge as closely to the original as was possible. That is what you will find today when crossing this particular bridge.

    It is obviously a modern bridge spanning the river Arno. Pedestrians and cars can be seen crossing the bridge. From the bridge one can see the flowing waters of the river. Amazing scenery.

    One of the many bridges over the Arno River, this one connecting Lungarno del Tempio on the north to Lungarno Benvenuto Cellini on the south bank. This is the 4th iteration of this bridge, originally built in 1837 as a suspension bridge, then in 1890 as a steel bridge, In 1944 it was destroyed by the retreating German forces and rebuilt in 1949 as the unassuming reinforced single arch concrete bridge you see today.
    Elegant in its simplicity, this bridge also provides a more eastern access to Piazzale Michelangelo. Nice photos from Ponte Alle Grazie.
