The most beautiful bridge in Florence and one of the most photographed in the world, is not always a chic place. Although today are the goldsmiths' workshops to attract caravans of tourists, until 1565 were the shops of greengrocers and butchers to dominate the bridge. Later, when it was built the Vasari Corridor, goldsmiths and jewelers took the place of the previous. In 1565 Giorgio Vasari built for Cosimo I De 'Medici the Vasari Corridor to join Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti. The corridor, about one kilometer long, starts from Palazzo Vecchio, through the Uffizi Gallery, and over the shops of Old Bridge and then continue to Palazzo Pitti.
