Foto Friday: Ponte Vecchio, Florence

Foto Friday: Ponte Vecchio, Florence

Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels.

This week’s photo is of Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

Ponte Vecchio, which literally just means “Old Bridge” in Italian, is one of the most famous sites in Florence. Spanning across the Arno River, this medieval structure dates back to the 1300s, but was said to have first appeared as early as 900, and was one of the only bridges in the city that wasn’t destroyed in WWII.

Lined with shops of all sorts, this is a popular spot with locals and tourists alike.
