Gardens and stairs

Living in or exploring a hill town gives you plenty exercise. Many, many feet have walked these stairways for hundreds or thousands of years, as can easily be seen from the wavy patterns of wear. Pocket gardens abound, blooming with a plethora of flowers a/o vegetables.

Friends, Romans, countrymen lend me a hand.

    I love the stairs at the top and the ramp. At first, I couldn’t tell if the ramp goes all the way up. That’s pretty cool.

    • Both side of the town are on hillsides, Dan, so there are a lot of stairways going either up to houses or up from one street to another. As I said, a great town for staying in shape if you walk much, although the center of town is more or less flat, as it’s in the little valley.

    Some great shots in this collection. They all have a quiet, peaceful, unhurried feel about them.

    • The high season here is in the fall and winter, when people are more interested in being in hot thermal waters. Only one day was it more crowded and yes, it’s very peaceful.

  6. Nice photos, Janet. The first one is my favorite. It has an air of anticipation and promise to it.

    • There’s something about looking up a set of stairs like this with a door at the top that makes you wonder what’s inside. I feel the same way about the entrance to a garden, especially if there’s a gate.

    Those stairs would do in my knees but it would be worth it. Lovely!

  8. Love those wavy old steps, Janet. 🙂

  9. Great shots! Stairs and gardens remind me of the Amalfi Coast and I’m glad I don’t have go up and down those stairs (although I did a fair amount going up and down in Amalfi).

    • Living here would certainly keep a person in shape and the town is small enough to walk most places. It reminded both me and my s-i-l of Italy in other ways as well, especially the apartment building with balconies.

    Wavy stairs are intriguing. I imagine all the thousands of people who walked there before me and what their stories might have been. Great photos of stairs – especially the first one!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
