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.

Departure to Florence at 6:30 in the morning
Florence was the capital of Italy between 1865 and 1871, during the Italian Unification. In the Middle Ages it was an important cultural, economic and financial center. He knew his time of greatest splendor after the establishment of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, under the rule of the ”Medici” dynasty.
Florence is the urban center where the Renaissance artistic movement originated in the second half of the 14th century, and it is considered one of the world’s cradles of art and architecture as well as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its historic center was declared a World Heritage Site, and features medieval and Renaissance works such as the dome of Santa María del Fiore, the Ponte Vecchio, the Basilica of Santa Cruz, the Palazzo Vecchio and museums such as the Uffizi, the Bargello or the Gallery of the Academy, which welcomes Michelangelo’s David.
La Cuna de Galileo
Among the most important monuments of the city is the cathedral, built in marble between 1064 and 1118, in Pisan Romanesque style, with its bronze portal by Bonanno Pisano and the pulpit by Giovanni Pisano. Next to the cathedral is the striking leaning tower, from the 12th century, with a height of 58.36 meters, which suffered its characteristic inclination immediately after its construction began.
Due to the nature of the terrain, there are two other leaning towers in Pisa: the bell tower of the church of San Nicola, and the bell tower of the church of San Michele degli Scalzi.
The reason that such a number of buildings, especially the tall and slender ones such as the bell towers, are tilted, is the swampy nature of the land on which the city is located, which in many cases yields and settles with the weight of these buildings.
