I love cobbled pavement...it's rare here anymore, usually torn up when resurfacing a street! Great photos!

So this is where you take your photography walks, VP.

I really like that pavement too.

I agree with the others...that pavement is quite nice.

I especially love the paving stones. Must be quite some work to lay those.

That's quite a complicated pattern on the cobblestone pathway VP, looks good and with the little boats tied up in the background. A bit different from your last post, wow how big is that boat that it makes the lifeboats seem so tiny!!

It's so pleasant when someone is guiding you on the streets of an unknown town. Thank you, VP, for showing us, your Livorno!

Most of our cobblestone streets have been replaced. A classic bumpy ride, no more.

Really unique stairs! I can see how it connects to the compass rose...the brick road is lovely :D

Yes, the cobbled pavement is really, it has an antique urban essence.

One of my favorite memories of Italy are the numerous cobbled pavements. It just demonstrates the care and attention to artistic detail that makes your country so delightful to visit.

I definitely like the combination of cobblestone and brick. At least here.
