"Ponte Vecchio" Ponte Vecchio Tip by CliffClaven

Ponte Vecchio, Florence: 190 reviews and 326 photos


In Florence you can buy postcards showing a deserted Ponte Vecchio, with not a soul disturbing the outline of its buildings. Hm, not very realistic, since there is hardly a moment, night or day, when there isn't someone on the bridge. Old Cliffie remembers walking over the bridge at about 4 o'clock one morning, and there was a young German down on one knee proposing to his girlfriend as the first grey light of summer dawn was beginning to appear. Rather than offer his congratulations, old Cliffie left them to savour the beauty of the moment.
