Ponte vecchio in Florence

Picture 075 [Ponte Vecchio]

Ponte Vecchio is a medieval bridge on the Arno River and one of the most frequently visited attractions in Florence. It was originally constructed in Roman times but in 1333 it was destroyed by flood and had to be reconstructed on redesigned foundations where it stands since then. It is the only bridge in the city spared by the Germans during their retreat in World War II.
