River Arno and Ponte Vecchio from Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence, Italy

River Arno and Ponte Vecchio from Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence, Italy. The Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) over the River Arno was built in the 14th century, predominantly by Taddeo Gaddi. The oldest segmental arch bridge in Europe, the bridge has a series of overhanging shops built upon it. Up to the late 16th century these were occupied by butchers until, unable to tolerate the smell, Cosimo I de Medici had them moved on.
