Ponte Vecchio

Florence, Italy

Florence’s most powerful family, the Medici, preferred not to mingle with 13th-century commoners, so they decided to build a bridge over the Arno River between Uffizi and Palazzo Pitti to distance themselves. Today, the bridge is a lovely place for locals and visitors alike to shop for jewelry by day or take a romantic stroll by night.
