Se cree que fue un puente construido inicialmente en madera por los romanos, poco después de la fundación de Florencia. A lo largo de su historia, ha sufrido diversas reconstrucciones. Desde siempre ha contenido distintas tiendas (principalmente joyerías) y gran actividad comercial; según la leyenda porque en el puente se estaba exento de tasas e impuestos. Se cree además que el término "Bancarrota" se originó en este puente, debido a que cuando un vendedor no podía pagar sus deudas, su mesa o puesto para la venta, era rota por los soldados: banco+rotto = bancarrota. Al no disponer de una mesa el comerciante ya no podía vender sus mercancías.
