The Ponte Vecchio is one of the symbols of Florence and one of the most famous bridges in the world. Crosses the Arno River at its narrowest point, where a Ford existed in antiquity. Famous are the shops of master goldsmiths and often have a backroom cantilevered over the river built and supported by Corbels (or "made").

At the center of the bridge the shops stop with two terraces: one to the East is vasarian corridor surmounted by, while the other houses the monument with a bust of Benvenuto Cellini, sculptor (and Goldsmith).

The gate of love

The cancelled Cellini monument has been used by lovers to hang padlocks with written in Sharpie, symbol of a love connection that you want to be indissoluble; the lock keys are then thrown into the Arno so that no one can remove more symbolically. It is now forbidden to hang new padlocks worth a ticket!
