Description

A view of the The Ponte Vecchio, a Medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy. The title suggests that it is depicting the city Firenze. In the bottom right corner there are two small boats cast in shadows. Top left, billowing white clouds above the covered bridge. Reflections of the bridge and the city in the clear river.
