The Italian Elevator

The Italian Elevator

There are 156,349 reasons why I love Italy, but one of them has to be how petite things are: coffee, pastries, cars, elevators!  We stayed in an old palazzo (repurposed palatial building or palace) in Perugia, Italy, that required us to climb three different styled staircases and use a tiny elevator to reach.  I asked Eddie to help me photograph the journey down from our Airbnb apartment to the street so you’d have perspective for just how small and mighty the path was.

 

Ding!

 

Pushing the buttons is always my favorite part.

Chest to chest!  Sorry, the elevator is full.

 

When we got in upon arrival, we had to go one by one and take off our backpacks.

The climb down begins through various sized doorways and staircases.

Now Eddie is annoyed but I have the keys, so he needs me.

Finally we exit the building and emerge into a crowded Perugian street for gelato.
