A welcoming glow

Tucked away in a little side street near Piazza di Santa Croce,  Florence, we found this little shop full of all things Pinocchio. I vaguely knew that the little character was Italian, but it seems that Geppetto the woodcarver created him in a village near Florence.

Doesn’t the shop have a lovely glow?

Bridges across the Arno

At least seven bridges span the River Arno in Florence, here are some of them,

Beginning with the closest, Ponte Vecchio, the only one not bombed in WW2. Next Ponte St Trinita, Ponte alla Carraia – my favourite, and way off in the distance, the most modern, Ponte Amerigo Vespucci.

I’ve chosen this photo for Paula’s Thursday special, pick a word from five. I chose spanning and the photo was taken through a window in the Uffizi.
