My husband and I discovered, accidentally, that Ponte alle Grazie is the perfect place to do a bit of birdwatching if you're a keen birder (as we are) and happen to be in Florence. There is a weir beneath the bridge that is frequented by...More

We walked to the bridge and watched the sunset. Absolutely amazing over the river Arno. You can also see people fishing in the water and boats out with people. It is beautiful.

Having visited Piazzale Michelangelo, I crossed this bridge on the way back heading to the Uffizi Gallery. The view east over the sand banks was unexpected, I enjoyed seeing some dogs down there having an off leash romp.

This is another bridge that crosses the Arno River. This bridge gives good views of the river but also of the Ponte Vecchio and the many old buildings that line the river in the central area of Florence.
