I really enjoy and love to see the images of the ships entering or leaving Livorno.

I like your photos of this big ship, VP! First time I saw one was when I was visiting my son in Canada, 5 years ago. Then I saw them in Dubrovnik and Venice:)

That thing is HUGE!! I mean very HUGE. I cannot believe anything could be so big and yet it is kinda beautiful in it's own way. MB

The ormeggiatori look so small next to their huge charge.
