Italia and Vespucci

Italia (A 5314), Amerigo Vespucci (A 5312), port of Livorno
The sailship “Italia” moored at the Elba pier with the “Amerigo Vespucci” berthed at the Capitaneria pier. Just for comparison: the cruise ship in background is the 238-meter-long “MS Riviera”.

I seem to remember seeing the Amerigo Vespucci in Norfolk several years ago during that city's Tall Ship festival.

The contrast between the tall ship and the cruise ship is hysterical. Give me the tall ship!
