Cheap hotels near Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy

The Ponte Vecchio is the oldest and most famous (and most photographed... and most proposed upon...) bridge in town. Its stones date from Medieval times and it arches over the Arno River linking Florence’s Old Center with Oltrarno at the river’s narrowest point.

The bridge is believed to have been built during Roman times and is first referenced in a document from the 900’s. Back in the day, butchers occupied the shops along the Ponte. Today, however, the bridge bustles with an array of shops hawking everything from jewelry and art to souvenirs.
