Ponte Vecchio

An Everlasting Symbol of Florence

Built very close to the Roman crossing, the Ponte Vecchio, or Old Bridge, was the only bridge across the Arno in Florence until 1218. The current bridge was rebuilt after a flood in 1345. During World War II it was the only bridge across the Arno that the fleeing Germans did not destroy. Instead they blocked access by demolishing the medieval buildings on each side. On November 4, 1966, the bridge miraculously withstood the tremendous weight of water and silt when the Arno once again burst its banks. Nothing short of a wonder…

  1. Pointe Vecchio – was an hour from Firenze in Lucca some years ago – was tired out from doing three workshops in the Netherlands, so we didn’t make it – hopefully next time to this beautiful view!
