Also adding to Florence's eternal charm is the Arno River with the Ponte Vecchio crossing over it. Above the Ponte Vecchio you can see a part of the beautiful Vasari Corridor that passes just above the goldsmith shops that today occupy the sides of the bridge. Commissioned by the Medici, it allowed them to move in complete safety from Palazzo Vecchio to Palazzo Pitti without having to cross through the streets of Florence. As well as jewellers and other unique shops where you can buy classic souvenirs and handcrafted items, there are also luxury boutiques.
