  • Address: Ponte Vecchio, Florence 50125, Italy
  • Hours: Open daily
  • Admission: Free
The ancient Ponte Vecchio bridge is as much a symbol of Florence as the red dome of the Duomo. Ponte Vecchio means old bridge, and indeed it dates back to the 14th century.

The three-arched bridge is picturesquely lined with several stories of jewelry shops and market stalls. It’s one of the most popular places in Florence for taking a stroll or just hanging out, and the decorative central arches are picture-perfect spots for snapping photos of Florence.

Running across the top of the Ponte Vecchio is part of the famous Vasari Corridor, built for the ruling Medicis by the Renaissance painter and designer Vasari. The private enclosed walkway leads from the Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi Museum, across the top of the bridge to the Pitti Palace on the other side of the river.

Practical Info

The Ponte Vecchio crosses the River Arno, linking the historic city center with the Altrarno district on the southern bank. It’s only a five-minute stroll from the Uffizi.
