Ponte Vecchio

Recommended
The city's oldest surviving bridge has been rebuilt several times at this spot, spanning the Arno at its narrowest point. In 1944 it was the only bridge to be spared by the Germans, but was nearly swept away by flood waters in 1966. Its arcades are occupied by jewellers and goldware shops which attract crowds of shoppers and tourists.
