The oldest bridge in Florence, Ponte Vecchio is a medieval bridge over the Arno. Built in 1345 on the ruins of a Roman bridge, it reflects the traditional style of that time, with many houses built within it. During the Renaissance, the bridge housed goldsmiths, replacing traders whose smell offended Duke Ferdinand I; they're now converted into shops. Many musicians and street artists perform there. It supports the Vasari Corridor, connecting the Pitti Palace in Palazzo Vecchio.
