The beautiful Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence.

Florence’s oldest bridge is the aptly named Ponte Vecchio (meaning “old bridge”). The structure we see today was built in 1345, but it is not the original bridge to be built there. The first bridge, which dated back to the Roman Empire days, was destroyed in a flood in 1333.
