Padua market place

Most Italian towns still manage to retain their tasteful classic charm.

I have this inward dream of living near a market like this and buying fresh food on a daily basis. I know I never will, but it's nice to have dreams.

Picturesque !
Looks like a very intresting market surrounded with all these beautiful old buildings.
I'm really enjoying these images John, not the normal holiday type ones, this has loads of atmopsphere set down among those lovely buildings.
These are great stalls and the fruit and veg look great and to be able to shop at them in the sunshine is even better smile
It's good to see markets are surviving the supermarkets all around the world. Lovely colourful scene John
John Prior: Thanks Janet, a good point, supermarkets are quite small and few and far between in both Spain and Italy, which is as it should be, and the populations look healthier for it also.

I love market places like this. Nice.
Looks a bit like Bridgnorth tongue
John Prior: Thanks Bill, I'll take your word for it smile
I like the Italian marketplaces, and this one is nice too!
Have a nice day.
