discover: unexpected art in florence.

h and I love discovering street art when we travel. So we were thrilled when we saw something fun going on with the street signs in Florence:
At first we didn't know if it was something the city implemented (perhaps a ploy to catch drivers' attention or get tourists talking) or a brave artist. After a little research we learned that it was Clet Abraham, a French artist who is responsible for altering TONS of Florence street signs with clever stickers. 
My favorite is the sign with the little sardine men :) 

Have you visited Florence? 

Did you notice the street signs or any other unexpected art?

    ps. although I do wonder if some of these could be a bit dangerous, since they do distract from driving I'm sure.
