Santa Maria del Carmine is best known for the Brancacci Chapel by Masaccio, Masolino and finished by Filippino Lippi.  Santa Maria del Carmine is located in the Oltrarno, on the other side of the river.  Like Florentine facades, this one is still unfinished.  From the outside it looks like a wall but as you walk, in the enchantment flows over you.  The crowds will be surrounding the famous Brancacci Chapel, so explore the rest of the church.  There are many other chapels with pieces of work that are rare and preserved.  Once you reach the Brancacci Chapel, you will notice the different styles of painting these biblical images.  Masaccio's depiction of Adam and Eve's expulsion from Paradise is a grim and depressing viewpoint of how they felt.  It captures sorrow and sadness.  Masolino's Temptation of Adam and Eve, brought a more hopeful look to their faces.  Moreso that they felt invincible and could pass through the Paradise gates even though they tried the forbidden apple.

Ponte Vecchio

  • Ponte Vecchio
  • Florence, 50125

You can't miss the most recognizable landmark of Florence, the Ponte Vecchio.  Constructed in 1345, the Ponte Vecchio is the oldest bridge still standing in Florence, hence the name.  The multicolored structure bridge was first home to butcher shops. As the noble bankers would cross the Arno river to their offices, there was a rancid smell of pigs blood and rotted meat which extremely offended them.  In an effort to improve the area, the Medici stepped in and ordered the lower class shopkeepers out and moved goldsmiths and diamond-cutters in. Ponte Vecchio is the only bridge that escaped the bombing by the Germans in WWII.  Today, now a pedestrian bridge, the shops shimmer and shine with necklaces, rings and charms of the most expensive kind.  Tourists can enjoy an early morning walk over the bridge before the shops open or at sunset where lovers stare at the horizon as musicians sing and be merry.
