I wouldn't mind testing some of that vino tuscano....

A few bottles of wine and then a spin on the carousel. Looks out!

Sono rimasta molto colpita dalla giostra che ha riportato nella mia mente tanti ricordi, e dall'antica grata, oggi è molto difficile trovare un artigiano che lavori il ferro battuto a questi livelli||||

An interesting walk today. I like the carousel, I've never been on a 2-storey model. Guess I'll have to wait for the stork to bring me some Italian wine. I prefer a nice San Giovese or a Nero d'Avola though. ;)

A two-tiered carousel is my idea of a wonderful ride. Terrific photos, but the child-in-me wants to ride on the carousel.

The carousel is spectacular and I have "hunted" them down in Paris (and beyond). I have seen and posted a few "double-deckers" but none more colorful and fine as this one. Kate (above) sent me over.

Your blog is beautiful and although I have been to Italy many times, I have not been to this western edge of Tuscany... yet

Bises,

Hi VP, like everyone above I have not seen a two tiered carousel before either, so was wonderul to see, how cool would it be if the top and bottom levels went in opposite directions, or maybe not...it's making me a bit dizzy just thinking about it. Hope you enjoyed glass of vine at the end of your walk!!

Fantastic carousel, with a '1st floor' and all. I like when they do look old.

A happy carousel, making happy the children and an intricate grate!

Virginia said...

I took one look and thought first....la Tour Eiffel! It reminds me of the one my grandson rode there. Now, let's open that vino!
