With a name like "disco bus" it just makes me want to take a ride.

Great walk! I like how the Piazza del Municipio looks and I am trying to think if I would still enjoy a ride in the Disco Bus. Have you tried it?

EG Wow said...

I especially like that door knocker! (My husband has a small door knocker collection.)

Those fortresses, like your first photo, are appealing for me!

Jack said...

Now this was a good and productive walk, VP! Love the lion door knocker, the bus and the still water around the fortress.

We can all come and it would be a Disco Blogger Bus!

Love your walks and I enjoys going along with you---good exercise too. MB

Dina said...

I'd be happy to sight even just one of those treasures on a walk.

The disco bus is a good idea if people actually take it instead of driving fully loaded.

Today I stopped with the knocker. Beautiful!

That door knocker is fantastic! I think I'll go antiquing to see if I can find one appropriate for my modest little door.

Another lovely walk VP - I love Fortezza Nuove - it's superb and disco bus is funny:)
We have very similar kiosk in Gliwice (now it's a bit redecorated)and of course I love the knocker!
I couldn't put comment on benches, I don't know why, but love today's one:)

LOVE that knocker and art on busses. That's an upgrade.

Greetings from Finland. This blog is fun to explore, through other countries, people, culture and nature. Come see Teuvo pictures on my blog. And tell all your friends, why should he go Teuvo pictures on my blog. That is why you get your country's flag to rise above the pictures to Teuvon images blog flag collection, a lovely end of February, Teuvo Vehkalahti Finland

I have one of those lion door knockers, got it years ago, but I don't know what to do with it, as it doesn't suit our front door at all! Quite sleek, those new benches.

Love the combination of the the water and Fortezza colours! Nice knocker and eagle too.
