Love locks in Florence?

Hi there!

I've noticed a few engraved lovelocks in my day in Florence and wondered a/ where can you buy a padlock I'm the city centre amd get it engraved if pods + how are they viewed by the local authorities? Do they get periodically removed? I've seen them in Paris, Rome etc and always mean to leave one. Only here till 6pm today. Thanks

Please don't. The locks damage the things they are attached to, and cost the city authorities money to remove them.

If you get seen doing it, you will get a fine.

I thought they were so tacky and was surprised they were allowed to remain. I saw them in Venice too on the Academia bridge and I wish I had brought my bolt cutters! ;)

These hideous things are also popping up here in NYC on the Brooklyn Bridge - just so awful; vandalism is not romantic.

I think they removed vast numbers of them in Rome recently due to the damage they do.

If you truly love each other, a lock hanging somewhere in any city should be meaningless.
