Ponte Vecchio, Florence, Italy -- Not only is it one of the most iconic bridges in Florence, it also has some of the best shopping. You won’t be able to resist snapping a pic of you standing on the bridge with all of Florence in the background. And there are tons of fantastic jewelry stores all around the bridge. Shopping and a perfect view of Florence, what else could you ask for?

Ponte Vecchio, Italy photo source The Ponte Vecchio is a Medieval bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewellers, art dealers and souvenir sellers. It has been described as Europe's oldest wholly-stone, closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge, but there are far older segmental arch bridges such as Alconétar Bridge.
