Ponte Santa Trinita and Arno River in Florence, Italy

Ponte Santa Trinita, which was built in 1569, is the world’s oldest Renaissance elliptic arch bridge. The red and white oars of the racing shell in the Arno river indicate this rowing team are members of the “Canottieri Firenze” Club that was founded in 1911. In the background is the distinctive Torre d’Arnolfo or the Palazzo Vecchio tower. The bridge was destroyed by German troops during WWII but reconstructed in 1958.
