Ah, the grand old thermal baths of Europe.

Thermal baths in Livorno, this is somewhat surprising to me. Are there still some of those?
God bless you!

I'll join all the others in saying that's funny! I wish I could go to a thermal bath right now, it is too hot and too sticky here.

Estupendas todas las cosas que nos dejas. Siempre un placer pasar por tu casa.

Saludos y un abrazo.

ho una bellissima foto di un matrimonio del 1932 nel salone delle terme, una bellissima tavolata, abiti lunghi...mia suocera era una piccola bambina di 4/5 anni...un salone meraviglioso.
è un vero peccato vedere come è ridotto oggi.
anzi, direi che è proprio una vergogna.
