  • Ponte Vecchio is just beautiful. Walking across the bridge was not like any other. Seeing the views from the shops located in the bridge was crazy. The best vantage point of the bridge is from the other one or from the parallel roads on either side of the river. A must see at least once. It is about a 20 minute walk from the main train station.
  • A perfect place to spend your evening walk. It looks amazing during sunset and if you stay a bit longer magic continues when city lights up. A must place to visit when you visit Florence. Bridge is lined with many jewel shops as well which is dates back to historical times.
