Ponte Vecchio Florence, Italy

October 2, 2012

The Ponte Vecchio Bridge (Old Bridge) was constructed in 1345 over the Arno Rive in Florence, Italy. As you can see from the images, the bridge is very unique. Currently, the bridge consists of small businesses such as jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers.

Fun Facts

  • It was said that the economic concept of bankruptcy originated on the bridge, when a merchant could not pay his debts.
  • Along the Ponte Vecchio people have began to attach padlocks to the bridge and throwing the keys into the river to signify lovers becoming eternally bonded. This is a result of mass tourism. This is starting to cause some infrastructure damage. Efforts have been made, such as signs permitting a fine for abandoning padlocks.
  • The Ponte Vecchio bridge is the oldest bridge in Florence.
