Lovely place to stroll and look at some amazing jewellery shops. To buy a memento for a loved one. BUT others are watching you keep your belongings same. Got back to the hotel to find our purchase no longer in the handbag...!

If you want to buy gold or silver from every fashion company possible - come here, other than that, just a crowded pathway to the other side of the river.

Ponte Vechhio is an architecture marvel and its quite busy buzzing with lots of people and jewelry merchants. This is the best place to admire the city by the water. The sunsets are memorable.

Best seen from another bridge because on the bridge itself, it looks like a normal street for the biggest part

Something different, great history and about thousand other tourists who also want to see this bridge. Best way of enjoying it is to take the pictures from another bridge a bit further away. Beautiful and totally worth seeing and visiting, though!

best place to start your tour of Florence. Grab some photos on the bridge, grab some photos with the bridge in the background from the uffizi and go, explore, eat and drink and get Lost in this magnificent city!

Best view from river, once you get to the bridge if you love jewellery you are in heaven because all the shops are selling the stuff. Wonderful bit of engineering to see them still standing

I am sure not everyones ciup of tea due to the commercialism and indeed I prefer S Trinita across the way but stil, has atmosphere especially when there is live music.

Too crowded. If you want to just say you’ve walked it then fine. Otherwise the Rialto in Venice is much cooler.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the

Never bought anything from a store there. But I'd suggest finding a appraissal service and always keep the receipt

Just today we took the train from Florence to Pisa and back. Trip takes just about one hour each way. Cost 8.4 E. Very easy, anyone can do it if we did! Trains run about every 30-60 minutes. We enjoyed walking around Pisa... More
