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.

Crossed the bridge numerous time when returning from Florence back to our Hotel at the Villa Cora. From a pedestrian perspective, it allows for views over the Arno to the Ponte Vecchio.

Ponte alle Grazie is yet another bridge on the Arno River, with a bit of WWII history. The retreating German Troops destroyed the bridge which had existed for hundreds of years, since about the 13th century! A new bridge on the same spot was reconstructed...More
