Where in the World (338)

One reader commented that the distorted image looked like the fire of London. It is a rather dramatic looking photograph featuring a river and several bridges. The river and the general background scenery give very little away in the form of clues. However, the bridge near the centre of the distorted image is quite distinctive. There are few river crossings with buildings actually covering the bridge itself. Most people recognised the distinctive silhouette of the medieval Ponte Vecchio. You can find it spanning the River Arno in Florence; or to give its Italian name, Firenze.

Florence / Firenze, Italy

Congratulations this week to Todd (@toddunctious), Jackie (@jackiesjourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury), Beverley (@bevsackville), Steven (@Airwaysfoodie) and Dave (@travelling_dave) who all identified the city correctly as either Firenze or Florence.

This week the city to identify might be a little more challenging. Gone are the days when skyscrapers were built with straight sides. The trend now is to introduce unusual angles and curves in an effort to give each one a unique appearance. The building in this distorted photograph definitely has a unique profile and is, therefore, the biggest clue as to the identity of the city. Good luck.
