Arcades of Bologna (2) by Segalili

The cityscape of Bologna is enriched by elegant and extensive arcades (or porticos), for which the city is famous. In total, there are some 38 kilometres of arcades in the city’s historical center and over 45 km in the city proper. The arcades make it possible to walk for long distances sheltered from rain, snow, or hot summer sun.

The photo was taken on June 2010.

    Congratulations. Well captured. I like the colours and composition.
    Mi chiedo come hai fatto a trovare i portici sgombri di gente. Ogni volta che vengo a Bologna ci trovo il mondo là sotto ;-)
