Very clever VP Ciao! And well done! I spent some time this evening using the Livorno Google Map to "drive" around your city! I got "lost" in the port area among the cargo containers and I believe an airport. Found my way back into the city and was on these streets, Via San Giovanni, Via della Cinta Esterna, Piazza del Luogo Pio, Pizalle 11 Maggio, Via Palestro, Via Galileo Galilei, and Viale Giosue Carducci. I was "driving" at street level so saw lots of beautiful buildings (windows, doors, benches, plants on balconies) plus saw graffiti everywhere. Saw the fortress with the huge cracks from top to bottom, very impressive! I look forward to seeing more...only I'm going to print out a street map so help me when I'm at street level so I'll know where I am in relation to everything else.

Better there than with a broken sail or worse mast in a rough sea!

@ Theanne - You may try this. We have just uploaded some photos to Panoramio and you can see them on a map or as a slideshow.

Super captures. You couldn't pay me to climb up a tall mast. At least he is safely roped in.
