Florence, ITALY

One of the most famous crossings in the world, the Ponte Vecchio (old bridge) was built in 1345 on the narrowest point of the River Arno. It was the only bridge not destroyed in World War Two (WWII) by the retreating Germans. The original workshops on the bridge were tanneries and butchers. Grand Duke Ferdinando I replaced them with jewellers that continue to ply their trade here today.
