Owner description: Erected during Roman times, this is the most ancient and photographed bridge in Florence, which is characterized by three arches and two wide arcades on each side housing the famous and unusual "botteghe" or shops.

One of the iconic landmarks of Firenze, take in the atmosphere whilst crossing the bridge and browse all the jewelry shops

Way to busy during the day but certainly looks great from the banks of the Arno.

We did end up crossing it later one evening on pure way to the opera and it was much better, less crowded with some lovely live music

This is the famous bridge in Florence which is beautiful to see and photograph, but disappointing to walk on unless yyou like endless jewelry dealers with tacky stuff. The view is nice from the middle and you can take a nice picture with the country side in the background.

Shops on the bridge sell beautiful but expensive jewellery. The view of the bridge is lovely and it's a nice bridge to walk across. Very busy and touristy but that's what we were!

It's just a bridge but with houses on it. Nice to walk across to the Oltrarno district. It looks better when see from the other bridges or with the festival fireworks above it. In the evening it's a place to listen to italian musicians singing local songs.
Don't buy from the peddlers. They are watching for the police, you aren't, and when the police catch you then you get fined 25Euro. Although it is entertaining to watch them disappear as the police approach.
