The Ponte Vecchio is a medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy. It is known for the shops built along it. Butchers, tanners, and farmers initially occupied the shops; the present shops are jewelers, art dealers, and souvenir sellers. The bridge spans the Arno at its narrowest point where it is believed that a bridge was first built in Roman times. The bridge was rebuilt three times: the first bridge was made of wood, and got destroyed due to a flood; the second time it was made of stone, but it was destroyed and only two of It’s central piers weren’t destroyed, and once again it was rebuilt.
