The Flying Booth

Where once stood the informations booth, piazza del Municipio, LivornoThe tourist information booth that once stood in “Piazza del Municipio” has flown away. It was probably tired of watching tourists from the cruise ships taking buses to Florence or, even worse, to Pisa.Parking booth, piazza dell'Unità d'Italia, LivornoBeing not so airworthy, it crash-landed a few blocks away, in “Piazza dell'Unità d'Italia”, where it quickly found a much more fulfilling job as a parking booth.

Gee, VP, it doesn't look very airworthy.

Interesting little booth. I hope it comes back to life with renewed vigor and purpose!

Luis Gomez said...

Wow VP! Great post. Again, I truly love your sense of humor.

That is too funny! I can just see it "flying" with the help of a crane right now.

Randy said...

I agree with Michelle. Nice little booth.

Your sardonic observation 'or, even worse, to Pisa' made me laugh VP.

Maybe the next one will be a Livorno-only tourist booth.

Glad it just moved and it's not gone. Here they have finally brought back to life these kiosks and they are working again like in the good old days.

Well, at least they didn't destroy it.

Great post, both words and photos. Don't think a booth can get an air worthiness certificate. Probably an illegal flight.

Poor tourists, who will inform them now?
