Ponte Vecchio

Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) is the oldest bridge in Florence. It has medieval origins, but its current appearance dates back to 1345 when it was built to replace the previous bridge destroyed by a flood. It is one of the few remaining bridges with houses built upon. Today these houses are used by jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers, but in the past the shops were occupied by butchers and tanners, until Ferdinand I decided to replace them for reasons of urban decor. In 1565 Cosimo I de' Medici commissioned to Giorgio Vasari a corridor over the Arno River to connect the Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio (Florence's town hall) with the Pitti Palace on the other side of the river. He wanted a way to cross the crowded bridge without walking between people. So Vasari built the Corridoio Vasariano on top of the shops on the bridge.

Cupola of Brunelleschi

Cupola of Brunelleschi is the famous dome built by architect Brunelleschi on top of the Florence Cathedral (Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore). The dome of the Duomo was the world's largest when it was completed in 1436. This dome is really huge and the prestige of Brunelleschi is having built it without supports thanks to an ingenious design. To make this possible, he studied the Pantheon in Rome, which long had the world's largest dome. The lantern on top of the dome was added later, in 1461, by Michelozzo. The Cupola of Brunelleschi dominates the skyline of Florence.
