I expected to find plenty of original and unique styles of jewelry. Most stores had the same offerings. Prices were higher than I expected even though I am aware that gold's value is currently high. There weren't any bargains to be had, even with some negotiation.

This is amust see in flirnce, a unique bridge and a postcard or Instagram photo, or maybe even a selfie.
It's nice to walk along the river arno to this ad I belive to get there early to look around as it can get very busy.
Also good to get a sight from the opposed side of the snow or from one of the other nearby bridges or even the Piazza michaelangelo?

Ponte Vecchio is iconic - you just have to cross it when in Florence. It's very crowded though, maybe go early.

What can I say about one of the most iconic European landmarks? With all its picturesque jewelry stores, we can easily say that this can be a sort of “shopping mall” from another age.

Ponte Vecchio is one of the places you need to visit when in Firenze.
Just remember that it’s crowded and packed with tourists.
Tons of jewellery shops.

This is a beautiful sight, but being on the bridge it self it quite crowded and touristy. So for your pictures, you might as well pass the parallel bridges!

Very cool part of Florence. On the bridge itself is a series of jewelry stores, but the scenery from and around the bridge is incredible

We stayed in the neighbourhood and on our first evening passed the Ponte Vecchio. In itself it is an amazing bridge with the shops either side (although the shops themselves are maybe not worth the visit). What made place special, however, was the sunset over the Arno, visible from the Ponte Vecchio at the top of the bridge. A great golden view of the river and the buildings on either side. And that in a bustling atmosphere.
