Via degli Archi

Via degli Archi, Livorno“Via degli Archi” (Archways Street) links “Borgo dei Cappuccini” with “Borgo Sant'Jacopo”. The name comes from the archways at both ends of the street.Via degli Archi, LivornoA narrow street which runs mostly between fields, it is more like a misplaced suburban road, not far from the city center.Via degli Archi, LivornoAt the other end one more archway reasserts the peculiar name.

There is something so special about archways!
So the first one is higher than it is wide.
The middle one is a nice combination of shapes.

Oh, I like so much this kind of "passagio" between streets, which can be seen in many town, in Europe.

These are fantastic, all of them, but my preference goes to the middle shot and it's almost northern Africa/Middle East look - great colour!

The archways are beautiful and speak of earlier times long before North America was settled by Europeans.

So many archways connected to the buildings! We don't see it often here. I like the yellow walls in your second photo :D
