This medieval stone bridge, closed and segmented, soars over River Arno, and is famous for the shops operate in it. Once the domain of butchers, it is now inhabited by jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers. There’s been a bridge at this location since Roman times. At the South East corner of the bridge, you’ll see the Torre dei Mannelli, which was built to protect the bridge.

The bridge is famous most of all for having popularised the term ‘bankruptcy’, which literally means ‘broken table’. When a money-changer failed to repay his debts, his table was broken by soldiers in a practice called ‘bancorotto’.

Another famous story is that Duke Cosimo of the Medicis ordered butchers away from the Vasari corridor he’d built between the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi; this spot was immediately taken over by gold merchants.

On the eastern side of the bridge, you’ll find a bust of Benvenuto Cellini, which as made in 1900 to honor the fourth century of the birth of this great goldsmith. Visit Italy in 10 Days Itinerary for an unforgettable Italy travel experience

  • Really fascinating and unique bridge. Neat to imagine how things must have evolved, giving one a glimpse into history. Neat seeing the jewelry stores on the bridges which is in some ways a homage to the city's history. A highlight of Florence.

  • I was staying in a flat very close, so I crossed the bridge like 10 times at least in a week. Easier early in the morning, especially if you want to take pictures. All the shop will try to sell you jewelry. Remember that the bridge is a natural border. Everything on one side is a tourist trap, Everything on the other is much better for your wallet.

  • This place is one of the best evenings I have ever spent in my life. Had been there with my wife and a small walk by the streets here and on the bridge by just holding her hand felt so romantic, it's one of those moments u would remember for a lifetime, such is the effect of the air in there. Dinner n wine by that place to call it a perfect evening.

  • A must see, yet another part of this stunning city. Can be quite busy as expected. Good options for food, although find the market hall upstairs, fabulous choice. Overall breathtaking buildings an sculptures.

  • One of the symbols of the city, providing excellent views particularly around sunset. The bridge itself is mostly covered with small jewellery and watch/accessory shops though there is an opening in the middle which looks at the river and the next bridge over. It gets super crowded as may be expected. The little shops on the bridge are pretty interesting, especially the way they lock down looking like little castles, very similar to how they would've looked a long long time ago.
