... an ugly 1950's-era bridge), we stopped to take a few more photos and check out how thoroughly brown the river had become overnight. That aside, under rolling storm clouds, the bridge offered a fantastic view of the Lungarni (the roads and paths that line the river like access roads line the interstate), the Ponte Vecchio & Uffizi area, as well as the more bucolic southern side of the Centro Storico. We did our best Clark Griswold at ...
