Travel theme: Arches of Firenze

Wandering around the Piazza della Signoria, Florence, the arches are not the star attraction.  Both Davide and his dark friend Perseus look out onto the arches of this wonderful piazza or stand under them. We look at these beautiful sculptures of young men and admire their physicality, not the arches.

While the lads look onto the arches and contemplate their great feats, Neptune only has eyes for Perseus- he is plainly sick of staring at arches!

Neptune is not interested in arches.

Thanks Ailsa from Where’s My Backpack, for an excuse to travel to Italy today.

    1. Yes, a crap song to plant, but I think Neptune could be saying that- “it’s Ok for you youngies ‘underneath the arches’ while I’m stuck out here in the Piazza with all these lady perverts!”
