Ponte Vecchio

Erected during Roman times, this is the most ancient and photographed bridge in Florence, which is characterized by three arches and two wide arcades on each side housing the famous and unusual "botteghe" or shops.

The Ponte Vecchio is a must see when in Florence. Crossing the bridge itself is interesting, if only for the crowds of people, the history, and the path that leads to new streets to explore. The real beauty of the old bridge though is in a stroll along the Arno, especially at night to take advantage of the incredible reflections, to view the bridge from along the river.

Ponte della Maddalena (detto Ponte del Diavolo)

Constructed during the era of the Countess Matilde di Canossa (1046-1115,) this medieval bridge that spans the Serchio River is said to have been built with the aid of the devil himself.

You can pull up at the side of the road just before this bridge as there are parking spaces. The bridge and surroundings are stunning and make a great photo or backdrop for a photo. The bridge is quite steep to climb (I think one side did have steps, but the other is just essentially a steep hill ????). Once you are at the top it is worth it though as you will get a fab picture of the river and landscape beyond. Free to do and well worth the stop!

Ponte Sospeso di San Marcello Pistoiese

Reviewed By Ina_Vandewijer - Zonhoven, Belgium

We were hiking from San Marcello Piteglio over the Ponte di Castruccio along the river to get to the ponte sospeso. It is an impressive hike where you can encounter snakes, foxes and other little animals if you are a bit quiet. The bridge was temporarily closed for repairs, but we had to cross it to get back to our starting point. So it was exciting couse we didn't know what to expect. But we made it safe and sound!
