Weekly Photo Challenge – Threes – Second Round

Here I am again, with another post about Trento for the Weekly Photo Challenge – Threes.  This time we’ll be going to the main Plazza of the city: Piazza del Duomo. I’m not going to show you the church though.   It is huge and beautiful, but I wanted to show you something different.

Here is Caffè Italia.  Entering the Plaza it’s one of the buildings that creates the Plazza itself.  The affrescos are beautiful and the coffee isn’t bad either:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Trento is a University town, like Padua, but not quite as old.  As you can see, it was a sunny day and there were a lot of people, by Trento’s standards in Piazza Duomo.

This is Hotel Venezia which is just across the street from Caffè Italia and if you keep walking you’ll come upon one of the oldest drug stores of Trento:


Outside of the Duomo, the most interesting thing we’ll see is Neptune’s Fountain.  It’s huge and everyone sooner or later likes to sit back and enjoy the sunshine:

Hope you enjoyed visiting the Piazza!

Weekly PhotoChallenge – Threes

I’ve been out and about these last few days and one of my “pilgrimadges” took me to Trento.  These are photographs from “Piazza Fiera” just outside the walls of Trento.  This is where open market is usually held throughout the year.  Yesterday we found the square being readied for Carnevale!  So for the Weekly Photo Challenge – Threes, Piazza Fiera:
