The bridge is a magnet for taking selfies. Early in the day there are less people walking or shopping on the bridge. From mid-day on, it can get very crowded, so if you want the perfect pic, go early.

We visited in late November and on a rainy day so the crowds were sparse. We were able to stroll and take pictures, unlike visits in summertime! It was beautiful

In addition to the history of the bridge, shopping here is amazing as well. If you're looking for jewelry or watches you've come to the right place!

Interesting bridge and history. It looks better if you go to one of the other bridges so you can really see it.

Well worth the time to stroll over this bridge and marvel at the construction and then take pictures. Every store on the bridge sells jewelry, with widely varying degrees of quality. Some of the windows are chock full of gold and baubles. However, there were a few designers who caught my eye doing things that were unique. Well worth your time.

Old and gold. It is a place where you can buy expensive gold jewelries in Florence. The view is amazing. But its oldness and history will make speechless. You will like the view most especially in the early morning or late afternoon before or during sunset.

Heard a rumor that the Medici passage to the Uffuzi plaza on the 3rd level is being restored for 2023 opening.

Pretty crowded place. Historic bridge to cross the Arno. Lots of gold shops and other stores to browse at. Must see if you’re in Florence plus it’s on the sunny side of town. Good when it’s cold! Read the history of the bridge. It’s a good one

Chain stores and designers have taken over the stalls. I much preferred it 40 years ago when you had actual artisans working and creating. Several purchases back then, none this time. Better ways to spend time in Florence.
