Ponte Vecchio and Arno River

Ponte Vecchio & Arno River

After a nice break of gelato, we marched towards the Ponte Vecchio Bridge & Arno River through the narrow courtyard between the Uffizi wings. The street to bridge along the river side is colluded with many street vendors selling different kinds of artefacts from Florence mementos, jewellery, toys etc. One can see people rowing boats in the Arno River. It’s the oldest bridge over the river and both edges of the bridge are lined with buildings. These buildings were initially housed butchers shops. But are now replaced with Jewelry shops making it must see activity. If you have some extra Euros in your budget one can do some shopping too.
