Tall Ships Walk

Training ship Palinuro, LivornoMy last walk on Livornese soil was at the end of August, you saw it in three installments during our holidays. The following pictures were taken aboard the two training ships actually in port, a short but very rewarding walk beginning with a polished compass on the “Palinuro”.Training ship Palinuro, Livorno“Faventibus ventis” is the Latin for “by favourable winds”, which is the motto of the ship.Training ship Amerigo Vespucci, LivornoA brass cover, this time on board the “Amerigo Vespucci”.Training ship Amerigo Vespucci, LivornoEverything is neatly arranged on the deck of the “Vespucci”.Training ship Amerigo Vespucci, LivornoBeyond the polished brass and the netting, a view of the port.

It's the little things that count.
