Indeed, this is the famous Ponte Vecchio in Florence. It spans the historic Flume Ponte, named for the well-known Roman Emperor, Ponte Minimus. "Vecchio" is, of course, Italian for "vegetable" and in olden days it was to this bridge that farmers brought their crops to market, some of them rowing for miles from upstream where their fields and gardens lay in the fertile valley of the Flume Ponte. The small buildings clinging to the sides of the bridge are intimate "ristorantes" where even today one may enjoy a repast of Italian cuisine prepared from the very finest,freshest, and most outrageously over-priced ingredients.
