Ponte Vecchio

The Ponte Vecchio is a famous and well-known bridge in Firenze, Italy. It was built in 1345, crosses the river Arno and is completely covered by houses. It is part of a completely roofed way between the Palazzo Pitti and the Galleria degli Uffizi on the other side of the river.

The Ponte Vecchio is the only bridge that hasn’t been destroyed in World War II – it has only been blocked. Other bridges like this can be found in Erfurt, Germany (Krämerbrücke) and formerly also in Hann. Münden, Germany (the Alte Werrabrücke is nowadays an ordinary bridge).
