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.

I suspect Middle Age cities had lots of bridges that ‘carried’ buildings: in makes good sense
Dwellings above shops?
So what’s the attraction of the Ponte al Carraia, Gilly? I only know the Ponte Vecchia
Lovely colour contrast between sky and buildings and reflections too. All with such clarity. Are you reconciled to being home yet?
A dreamy capture, dear Gilly 🙂 I was hoping to see bridges. Thank you so much.
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.
Wonderful shot Gilly.
