Livorno Sightseeing

This bus, parked in front of the Chamber of Commerce, is part of a franchise present in many cities around the world.Piazza Cavour”, sadly misspelled on the sign, is one of the stops of a 60 minutes hop-on-hop-off bus tour, which would cost 12 Euro.City Sightseeing arrived here a couple of years ago and is an easy choice for a quick tour of Livorno.
By the way, we are in Paris since yesterday afternoon, but we are doing most of our sightseeing on foot or by métro.

Very colorful and a wonderful franchise to have in any city. I would assume there is some kind of cover if it begins to rain...

Aw, you lucky people being in Paris...I hope you have a wonderful time!

A tour bus might be a fun thing to do. Probably mashed in with a bunch of people I don't know though. I'm like you--I will walk and wander.

Enjoy your time away. MB

Wow, I've never seen a bus shaped like this!
An expensive bus ride, no?
I always wonder why they don't proofread signs before making them.
Someday, inshallah, I'll see those places on your map.

Meanwhile, you have a great time up in Paris.

No double deckers?

Probably a good idea for a first look around the town. Have fun in Paris.

Cool! This is the first time I've seen a normal bus with an opened roof! Great way to see the city :D

Very cool bus! I had never made a city tour on a bus, so I did it last year in Lisbon and it was fun.

Greetings to you both! Thanks for the comments, Trillian...much appreciated.

It's hard to believe Paris is that hot! When we were there (about this time) three years ago, we froze most of the time! I even had to buy a coat to wear!

I love sightseeing buses, and this one is soooo cute! If I ever come to Livorno I'll make sure I take it for a ride of the city.

My favourite in Paris is L'Open Tour. I've done it three times already - anything to avoid the smelly metro :-)

Yes, they have buses very similar to this here in Los Angeles.

I hope you are enjoying your trip to Paris.
