This is a good place to stand and see this statue and to soak up the atmosphere whilst watching life go by. You will have a great view over to the Castle and the docks and port, even nicer whilst watching the sun set.

These lovely statues adorn the waterfront pavement in the bay area. There's plenty of room to snap your picture against these imposing pieces of art.

This statue is about 7m and dedicated to the lower graded marine ships people. This statue is OK for taking picture the whole day, both the face and the backside are good

The statue and the symbol is good, but what's around of grafitti, broken pavement, cracked railing support, garbage, dog dropping. Not worth seeing.

This statue stands on a promontory looking out over the "new" harbour of Taranto. It is at one end of a pleasant promenade along the waterfront. Too bad that, like so much of Taranto, and so much of Italy, it is covered in graffiti and...More
