My mom took me to Italy for my 25th birthday. We went to Rome, Florence and Venice. While all were amazing, Florence was my favorite. While in Florence we went shopping on the Ponte Vecchio. We had been looking for something to bring back to commemorate the trip when we found this amazing jewelery store. I do not remember the name but it was the first store and the owner also owned another one just a few doors down. My mom and I now have matching jewelery – she has the ring and I have the matching bracelet. It’s black rubber with real diamonds and is unusual and amazing. The owner of the store still sends my mom a Christmas card every year…all the way from Florence! If you go, go to this store. Amazing pieces and friendly, helpful service makes it a truly unique experience!!!over 4 years ago

The world’s more charming bridge: Ponte Vecchio. We can describe it using all the fancy adjectives and most detailed descriptions. But only when you’re there you’ll understand how much amazing every inch of this place is.
And beware: no coffe or ice cream near there. IT’S EXTREMELLYEXPENSIVE!over 6 years ago
Jen, Mar and I were weary from walking around the beautiful city and paved sidewalks. We saw a gathering crowd lingering about the bridge and so we sat down and rested for awhile. It was serendipity that the sun was about to set and we saw its full glory as it bid Firenze a fond arrivederci! Ah, simply wonderful.over 6 years ago
