We were lucky to see the Ponte Vecchio as we had forgotton it was in Florence and it was chance someone told us they had just been there, we soon found our way to the river and saw the bridge in the distance. The picture tells the story, not only is the bridge a tourist attraction but a walk along the riverside will enable you to view the river activity, the apartments and general day to day activity within the neighbourhood.
The shops on the bridge are mainly jewellery with a few other shops and restaurants. Its a good place to browse , but make sure you bring your credit card if your partner takes a liking for the jewellery on display.
