Wheels in Florence

I know it is a complete cliche - but I couldn't stop taking pictures of bikes and scooters all lined up in Florence. More than once I found myself wishing I had one to ride around too - although since I was in town over Easter Weekend there were huge crowds and just getting around on foot meant a lot of weaving in and out, so I'm guessing a bike would have been a bit of a challenge.

A scooter would have come in handy the days I decided to trek up some of the hills of Florence to take in the view - it was a hike, but the views were worth it.

I'll admit there was a bit of me sad that my Italian holiday didn't include a ride on a bike with a basket full of flowers or on the back of a vintage Vespa...clearly I've seen too many romantic movies set in Italy.

Your pics bring back fond memories of my visit there. My daughter lived there for 9 months and had herself a bicycle which she used constantly.. have a cute pic of her on it.

I photographed doors a lot also while there.

La Vespa! Oh...there is something to be said about riding on the back of one along a crooked rode in Italy. The very thought drips with romance.
