'Blue Hour at Ponte Amerigo Vespucchi' - Firenze, Toscana, Italy

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Ponte Amerigo Vespucci is a bridge over the Arno River in Florence and named after Florence-born explorer Amerigo Vespucci.

It joins the Lungarno Amerigo Vespucci to the Lungarno Soderini. To the east is the Ponte alla Carraia. This bridge, like most of the other bridges over the Arno, is a reconstruction. Plans were made in 1908 to bridge this section of the Arno to service quartiere di San Frediano, but the plans were never realized. In 1949, a bridge, ponte di via Melegnano, was constructed from the recycled remains of other bridges that had been destroyed by the Nazi army as they withdrew before the advancing Allied forces during World War II.
