The really interesting aspect of the bridge is the first floor corridor above that allowed the Medicis and others to move about the inner city without rubbing shoulders with anyone common. The bridge itself whilst nice and an opportunity to selfie etc is actually just...More

Watch out fro the many aggressive street vendors approaching people to peddle their cheap ware. It is difficult to take pictures due to the onslaught of the masses. The late afternoon views off the bridge in both directions is spectacular.

Good to be there specially at night with good singers and bands playing all nights. During the day is very crowded but also nice to walk around and taking some photos

Historically it’s cool but in reality it’s just a tourist trap. Would be so much better if they got rid of the jewelers and had cafes and restaurants instead with seating on the road.

times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
