The simple beauty of hidden historical corners...

...forbidden for cars. Just the sound of footsteps.

I love the pedestrian zones in European towns. We will be coming to Bellagio on Lake Como this summer. There are no cars on its narrow walkways.

The trees each get a little hug of dirt. Very sweet.

This is true. When a city decides to ban cars from a historical site or corner or street, it is almost always a very good thing even for tourism!

A good example of this is Québec City, where the number of pedestrian streets in the old city grows every year.

Lovely! Some U.S. cities have areas where vehicular traffic is banned, but not enough!

This is a beautiful space!

One of the many things I miss about Germany...I loved all the little "old town" areas where there were no cars allowed!
How wonderful.
