Pisa, Italy

All of these photos were taken in Old Town Pisa.  The first two date back to the 11-12th century (judging by the age of the building).  It has been said that they used to burn coal in these streetlights.

This first picture shows the eagles and lights on Orlov Most, which means Eagles’ Bridge.  Four bronze statues such as this one (you can see a second in the back) which “guard” the bridge five it its name.  The bridge, constructed in 1891, spans the Perlovska River in downtown Sofia.
