Pisa - the local cafe.

Lots of small cafes can be found in the back streets of Pisa -  intimate places with just a few chairs and tables.

The photo was taken early one Sunday morning so the cafe had yet to open .


Florence - Market stall

Sunday morning and here in Florence market stalls appear in the many squares.

The cashmere garments on this stall were quite cheap.

Pisa - The Tower

Well what everyone goes to look at in Pisa ..

One rather tilting tower.


A new Blog

It's 2009 and a new Blog created to record my visits to Italy.

Not only my holiday photographs on show but post cards and photographs from some sixty years ago.

So enjoy ....
