Ancient Illumination – Ponte Vecchio – Florence, Italy

 

Photo of the Day – Ancient Illumination – Ponte Vecchio – Florence, Italy

With the change in our travel plans came a rare opportunity to do something I usually can’t do for long periods of time – visit family! Now you may be wondering what that has to do with travel, but I’m here to tell you :) Lucky for me, my Mom moved to Florence, Italy in 2010. Florence is home to two different AbsoluteVisits – #47, The Florence Cityscape and #94, The Uffizi Gallery! So, here I am in Florence for two weeks which will be jam-packed with exploring everything Florence has to offer.

First up, the Ponte Vecchio! This beautiful bridge never gets old to look at and explore. This time, my Mom and I happened to be getting around town well after dark when I captured this shot. I shared a couple photos of the bridge previously (here and here), but you can see how different it looks at night in this photo.

I hope you enjoy this photo and I’ll have more coming from one of the most beautiful places in the world (and easiest to take photos of!).
