Bel Giorno

A day with gorgeous light, the streets full of people in spite of the cold, enjoy a walk through Centro Storico with me.

Ponte Vecchio

Palazzo Vecchio

Via Roma

Dead animals (there is a lot of that here)

"Caldarroste" Hot roasted chestnuts

Street painting

Nostalgic for cotton candy

Via Calzaiuoli (shoemaker street)

Xmas lights on Via del Corso

Via del Corso

"Mangia, mangia!"

Zingara (gypsy woman)



Giambologna's "Nettuno"

Connected (more dead animals on their heads)

Rivoire (8 Euro hot chocolate!)


  1. Thank you so much for sharing all these amazing street scenes.

  2. Really nice post. Nice photos, too. You take your readers (well, this reader at least) on a tour of your home town, and make me feel as though I walk the streets alongside you. I see what you see. And I can sure smell those roasting chestnuts!
