Where in the World (155)

If my maths is correct then next week “Where in the World…” will have reached the age of three. Some of you have been identifying cities since the beginning. Others have only discovered it more recently. I shall be offering a small prize next week mark the occasion so do visit and take part next week.

Last week the city in the distorted photograph proved quite a challenge to identify. There were two clues to the identity of the city. The bridge and the palace (or castle like building). The latter is the Papal Palace but the city is not the Vatican. The bridge only reaches halfway across the river on which the city stands and according to a well known song is for dancing on. It is the French city of Avignon where rival popes set up their base.

Where 677

Only one person identified the city correctly. Congratulations go to Tim (@timofnewbury) who we know is an expert at identifying cities by their bridges. You can guarantee if there is a bridge in the frame then Tim will identify the city.

This week’s city is pictured from a little further away than usual in this competition. this is necessary to be able to include the city’s icon in the view. Hopefully this will not present such a challenge as Avignon.

Where 680

As usual you can leave your answer in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW155. If we mutually follow each other on Twitter then you could send me a direct message with your answer.

Please do not forget the hashtag #WITW155 as it makes finding the answers in a continually changing Twitter feed so much easier; you and your answer is more likely to be found.
