Long time no post... or I should say no time to process photos, no post ;) We're on the roads almost each and every weekend in the last weeks. This past weekend we visited Tuscany - round trip with 2 other couples. Not a dedicated photo trip but it was amazing time spent with great friends. We took accommodation in three places - Florence, Siena and Pisa. So the schedule was very busy in 4 days total. My personal highlight was San Gimigniano on a way from Siena to Pisa.

 

This photo shows Ponte Vecchio bridge mirroring in the Arno River. "It is a Medieval bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewelers, art dealers and souvenir sellers. It has been described as Europe's oldest wholly-stone, closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge,[1] but there are far older segmental arch bridges such as Alconétar Bridge. The Ponte Vecchio's two neighbouring bridges are the Ponte Santa Trinità and the Ponte alle Grazie." more here...

 

Thanks for looking!

Your feedback is always appreciated ;)
