Shore Excursions From Livorno: Ponte Vecchio In Florence

Ponte Vecchio © 2014 Ralph Grizzle

The iconic Medieval stone-enclosed bridge crossing the Arno River is known as Ponte Vecchio.

The bridge is pedestrian friendly, and you’ll definitely want to walk across it. You’ll find the bridge to be as interesting on the inside as it is on the outside.

Butchers were the original occupants of the shops lining both sides of the bridge, but today you’re not likely to find prime cuts of beef.

What you will find are souvenir shops and jewelry shops. In fact, you could spend a fair amount of time window shopping as you stroll this prime stretch of real estate crossing the river between the neighborhoods of Ponte Santa Trinita and Ponte alle Grazie.
