I visited Florence just over 15yrs ago and remember Ponte Vecchio being more vibrant and fresh. I don’t think they’ve cleaned or refreshed it since. Very old. Lots of annoying hawkers and just a lot of expensive jewellery.

Beautifull must see when in Firenze. Also great to photograph in the evening. Not much more to say then that there are many goldshops located on the bridge.

I felt this was more of a have to do it because I’m here thing.

It’s sort of interesting but at the same time kind of underwhelming.

I first experienced the Ponte Vecchio at sunset, and it was absolutely stunning. Classic landmark of Florence, and even though it's now full of tourists and expensive shops, it's still a must-see!

I’ve been to Florence several times and also have lots of local friends there. Every time I cross the Arno I somehow deviate my tour through il Ponte Vecchio . The energy of the place is incomparable. The beauty and atmosphere, unique.
It’s a masterpiece!
