This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Ponte alle Grazie, Florence Italy

The Ponte alle Grazie is a bridge in the city center of Florence and crosses the Arno river, with a structure of five arches, a few hundred meters after the fishing of San Niccolò. The current bridge is dated 1957, reconstruction of the previous and ancient bridge called "Rubaconte", named after the podestà Rubaconte da Mandello who had it built in 1227, designed by the architect Giorgio Vasari.

Pass By: Ponte Vecchio, 50125, Florence Italy

The Ponte Vecchio is one of the symbols of the city of Florence and is one of the most famous bridges in the world thanks to the presence of numerous goldsmith shops and the spectacular view of the Arno.

Pass By: Ponte Santa Trinita, Florence Italy

It was built in wood in 1252, under the patronage of the Frescobaldi family, taking its name from the nearby Basilica of Santa Trìnita (with the accent shifted to the first syllable), but collapsed after a few years, in 1259 under the weight of the crowd a show on the Arno. It was rebuilt in stone, but yielded under the pressure of the great flood of 1333 which spared only the bridge to the Graces. The subsequent rebuilding was slow and lasted fifty years, from 1356 to 1415.

The new destruction of 1557, again due to a flood, led to the construction of today's structure. The design, commissioned by Cosimo I, was the work of Bartolomeo Ammannati, designed by Michelangelo [2], who suggested the modern line of the three arches. The bridge was destroyed by the retreating Germans on August 4, 1944 and rebuilt about ten years later.

Pass By: Ponte alla Carraia, Florence Italy

It was the second to be built after the Ponte Vecchio and its first name was Ponte Nuovo. Minato, like all the Florentine bridges, during the Second World War and blown up by the Nazis in retreat to prevent the passage of the allied troops.

In 1948 it was rebuilt again, as it is now visible, maintaining the structure of the ancient 5-arch project by architect Ettore Fagiuoli.
