... Ponte Vecchio. It's the only bridge not to be bombed in the second world war. The bridge has shops on it that have been there since the 14th century. We crossed the bridge and took some photos from the other side of the river. As we made our way back to the hotel we passed the replica of Michaelangelo's statue of David.

Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take pictures so I cannot show you the pieces.
