Ponte Santa Trinita Tours

Ponte Santa Trinita
Built in the 16th century by Bartolomeo Ammannati with advice from Michelangelo, Ponte Santa Trinita, or Saint Trinity Bridge, connects the two banks of Florence’s Arno River and offers unobstructed views of the Ponte Vecchio. The bridge was rebuilt with its original materials in 1958 after its destruction during World War II.

The Basics
As one of Florence’s top architectural highlights, Ponte Santa Trinita is often included on architecture and photography tours, which also typically make stops at the Ponte Vecchio, Duomo Cathedral, and Pitti Palace. While walking tours are the best way to get a feel for the city, a traditional barchetto river ride offers a perspective of Ponte Santa Trinita often missed by visitors. Private tours of Florence ensure the full attention of a guide and allow visitors to tack a walk across the bridge onto the day’s fully customized itinerary.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Ponte Santa Trinita is a must for history buffs and photographers of all skill levels.
  • Windy conditions along the river may cause the temperature to drop, so remember to bundle up if visiting during the colder months of the year. 
  • Ponte Santa Trinita offers the best panoramic views of the Ponte Vecchio.
  • Download the Firenze Turismo app to access maps, cultural event calendars, and tourist information.

How to Get There
Centrally located within a 20-minute radius of most top Florence destinations, Ponte Santa Trinita is easily accessible on foot. If walking from the historic city center, take Via de Tornabuoni south to Lungarno Corsini. If walking from the Oltrarno (the Arno’s south bank), take Via Maggio north to Lungarno Guicciardini.

When to Get There
While the bridge is busiest during the summer months, its distance from the Ponte Vecchio means that it never feels overly crowded. For unobstructed photos or a quieter experience, go in the early morning or late evening.

World War II Legacy
On August 3, 1944, the German Command destroyed all but one bridge in the city of Florence. Smashed to rubble, the remnants of the Ponte Santa Trinita remained submerged under the Arno for 10 years until 1955, when enough money was raised to salvage the pieces and rebuild anew with stone from the same quarry used by the original architect.
