The Two Melorias

Islets of Meloria, Livorno
The islets of the Meloria seen from our flight in route to Pisa. Not a great picture, but it shows the 18th century tower on the right and the relatively more recent lighthouse on the left.

On summer weekends many boats gather around the islets, which are easily visible from the coast. Here is a view from the Terrazza Mascagni, with in foreground a group of passing paddlers.

It is interesting to see the two islets from different perspectives.
