Via Alessandrini is a very attractive stepped alley, lined with flowers, in the ancient and historical town of Gubbio; it leads very steeply up the hill from the Via 20 Settembre, a short distance past the Palazzo dei Consoli. Just about every tourist who walked past it stopped to take a picture looking up it, but I wanted a shot looking down. This took some considerable time as I got into a staring match with several people, desperate to get their shot, whilst I sat resolutely with my tripod, equally desperate to get mine.
