Next trip to Firenze already schedule for next February... but before... Bruges Belgium for Xmas
9dec17--A Thank You to our host, Portrait Firenze, for sponsoring this 'live cam' view of Ponte Vecchio, one of the most famous and beautiful bridges in the world, wonderful.
Crossed it once. Worth another visit, health permitting!
Just back from another great week-end in Firenze... can't get bored of if.. amazing city, and feeling so save comparing to Roma where we've been for 5 days before Firenze, way less crowed, but most of all, less beggars, less migrants and a Police that seem to do their job keeping you save and not allowing any tolerance to beggars, illegal sellers and migrants.. where in Rome can can sometime feel half of north Africa is trying to sale or take something from you
in 30 days.. we'll be on that magnificent Bridge again.. can't wait
@swa, I forget to mention, that to my knowledge it is not possible right now to book any visit to the Vasari corridor, some thing doing with the fire brigade that need to confirm the security,we took the tour last February and it was amazing
@swa, we've paid 600€ for the 3 of us and the guide, whom had all the keys to some totally restricted areait was schedule for 2 1/2 to 3H but we were in for a bit more than 3H 1/2, 4 or 5 years we took the regular "private" visit they organized and schedule every saturday morning, we than paid 65€ P/ per and it was OK but nothing special, we were more than 20 people and the guide was very rushy always checking the clock and calling back all the one that were taking their time to enjoy.So this time, we push our self to that totally private, we could decide where to stay longer and what ask to the guide, not only listening to a text they news so well for having it repeat every time.If you can afford the private one, don't hesitated, but you should booked it at least 10 days before, since they must check with the proper authorities at what time and date it could be done, we had to wait 3 days until we got the final OK on date and timing.
%arc what was the price of your privatetour?
A private tour (only us and the guide) in the full Vasari corridor is a must do in Florence, expensive but amazing experience, we were in for 3H 1/2 and will never forget it, the organize tour they make every Saturday morning is way to busy and way to fast to enjoy it properly and get a glim of what it is (we did it 4 years ago as well but did not enjoy it so much- group of 22 and a rushy guide) so this time we booked it privately and it was a must.
Lovely green water
Thanks Portrait, for providing this stunning view! It reminds me of the happy looks on our children's faces when they were standing right here on Ponte Vecchio and enjoying the scene and the flow of the river Arno. Very Beautiful!
Cheers to Portrait for hosting!
