Ponte Vecchio, Florence: 190 reviews and 326 photos
Originally the bridge was built just to allow access over the Arno. Slowly, with so much traffic going over it, merchants decided to set up shop on the bridge itself.
As that early traffic consisted primarily of traveling soldiers, it isn't surprising that the first merchants to set up shop were blacksmiths, butchers, and tanners.
Address: Across the Fuime Arno River
Directions: Between Lungarno degli Acciaiuoli & Borgo San Jacopo
