Bridges across the Arno

At least seven bridges span the River Arno in Florence, here are some of them,

Beginning with the closest, Ponte Vecchio, the only one not bombed in WW2. Next Ponte St Trinita, Ponte alla Carraia – my favourite, and way off in the distance, the most modern, Ponte Amerigo Vespucci.

I’ve chosen this photo for Paula’s Thursday special, pick a word from five. I chose spanning and the photo was taken through a window in the Uffizi.

  1. A beautiful photo. So romantic looking. Being from Pittsburgh, we love bridges. We’d be stuck without their spanning arms reaching and connecting us to the other sides of our three rivers.

I would love to hear from you . . .
