Ponte Vecchio Florence

Ponte Vecchio Florence by www.carlosmeliablog.comPonte Vecchio Florence  |  Florence, Italy  |  One of the must see and visit highlights of Florence is, without a doubt, the Ponte Vecchio or Old Bridge, erected over the narrowest point of the Arno River in Medieval stone, connecting via the Vasari Corridor, the Palazzo Vecchio (Florence’s town hall) with the Palazzo Pitti. It has always hosted shops and merchants who displayed their goods on tables before their premises, the present tenants are jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers. The bridge first appears in a document of 996, being Ponte Vecchio the oldest bridge in Florence. Some of the best views of the city and Ponte Vecchio, can be seen either from the windows of the Uffizi Gallery or from the Michelangelo Park. Corridoio Vasariano, commissioned by the Duke of Florence Cosimo I de’ Medici, so that he would not need to walk across the always crowded bridge while commuting between his residences Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti. Named after his creator Giorgio Vasari, was built in 1565 on top of the shops on the bridge. There are many lovely rooftops and restaurants along the Arno River overlooking the Ponte Vecchio, where to enjoy panoramic views and some romantic moments overlooks the sunset. Try perhaps the rooftop of the recently inaugurated Hotel Continental. Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator – www.carlosmelia.com
