This sketch is of the Florence and the Ponte Vecchi bridge which is a street with shops on both sides that crosses the Arno River. It was originally shops for butchers but due to the stink created by the butchering , they were replaced by Goldsmiths and jewelers. As we visited Florence, we saw many neat streets, churches and incredible statues.
This is the photo I took of the bridge in the late morning as we went to the square. Fortunately I had my Ipad with me and was able to download the photos onto the Ipad. Then I sketched from the Ipad once we were back on the ship.
Of course this is also one city where I think I can say I had my favorite gelati - dark chocolate and hazelnut. It was located on a back alley near the Domo Basilica and actually required getting a second gelati later in the afternoon.
