Via Maggio 22.
For those of you who were here with us in 2007, we are just down the street from: 1) the Ponte Santa Trinita (the first bridge west of the Ponte Vecchio); and 2) Paulo Peri, our wine guy. And for Alex and Tim, we are right around the corner from the famous Friends Pub. (More on that in a future post -- if I can type without slurring my words.)
The inside of our front door, complete with Renaissance deadbolt.
This is one of our capitals with the column plastered over. It supports the vaulting that used to form the ceiling of the colonnade.
This is another one of our capitals complete with atmospheric floor lighting.
This is the courtyard view from our kitchen window. Note the column and capital, the top three feet of which grace the inside of our apartment, next to our dining room table.
More groin vaults!!
And finally, what would a post from an American in Europe be without the obligatory, snarky reference to the bidet? So here goes...it's so nice to be in a country in which I don't have to do a handstand in the shower.
