...amazing old bridge with an interesting history. Unfortunately it's covered with lots of cheap-looking very conservtive jewellers. Disappointing. The highlight for us was a really pretty small leather shop at the south-end of the bridge (Mannelli Pelletterie)

Went there in December 25. Easy to walk in Christmas Day, only few people in that holiday. Stores were close. Very beautiful. Many sites in Florence were close but doesn't matter. We saw the Ponte Vecchio, one of the must see in Florence. But if you like the crowds and the shopping, don't go in Christmas Day. For us was... More

This city is just beyond beautiful! The small so you can really get lost and everywhere you turn around you see and feel the history! Me, my sister and our daughters ( age 12 and 16 ) stayed at the westin excelsior. Which is an amazingly beautiful hotel and close to everything. It's minutes away from the bridge ponte vecchio....

Iconic landmark in Florence that you must get a photo of before you leave, preferably from the top of the hill on the non-city side of the Arno river. Crossing the bridge did not improve my experience of Ponte Vecchio, but if you like jewellery and crowds it is worth the walk.

Great trip in Florence, but the bridge is definitely one to remember forever, and visit again. Weather, people, music, art, food everything amazing in Florence. i was dazzled by the beauty of this city.

Florence is simply captivating. Ponte Vecchio is an incredible view on the Arno river. It's the one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe. It looks wonderful during the day but my favourite view is on summer nights. It's home to quite a few expensive jewellery stores now but there are also street artists and artisans if you wanna just... More

Our first stay at Ponte Vecchio was a few years ago during Carnival! We loved the hotel the moment we stepped inside! From the owner, who seems to always be on the property daily, to the staff who always greet you by name and make you feel like family! The richly furnished hotel is small in size, but grand in...

My daughter and I stayed at the Ponte Vecchio for 2 nights in February 2013. Great location, we loved our room overlooking a canal and two old bridges. The bed was comfortable, we had our own bathroom across the hall, which was no problem since the place is quite small. we never bumped into other guests going to the bathroom.... More

My wife and I traveled to Florence last July. Along with the Duomo and Michaelangelo's David, the Ponte Vecchio (meaning "old bridge") is one of the most recognizable landmarks in this city. Built in 1345, the bridge was the only one to survive demolition by the Germans as they retreated from Florence. Apparently, legend tells us, Hitler expressly ordered his... More

My first view of the bridge was from a terrace just up the river. The Arno was a bit of surprise because, for some reason, I thought it was a much wider river. As you walk over to the Ponte Vecchio, you make a 90 degree turn and suddenly find yourself actually ON the bridge which was a bit of... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
