The pride and joy of the city-scene

The Mainz’s Old Town, is the pride and joy of the city-scene. Broad, roomy squares, lovingly-restored half-timbered houses and magnificent Baroque churches give Old Town its charming. Hidden behind its Rococo façades and hidden in its bourgeois Baroque houses are elegant and modern buildings, boutiques, cafés, restaurants and of course always an Italian gelato. I took this photo right next to an mexican restaurant that we went for dinner.

We need to return to this city to see the Gutenberg-Museum and appreciate once again the the first printing press that gave to the world the first mechanic printed book and the first printed Bible.
