There’s something I find charming about alleys and I love to venture into them, always with the excitement of not knowing where they might lead. Lisbon and Edinburgh are great alley cities. Unfortunately, Glasgow not so much as alleys in this city tend to be dirty and not inviting. I think it as something to do with the fact almost all old town was flattened to give way to 1900’s progress, only to some of those to be flattened again. I agree alleys aren’t exclusive to the old world but around this parts and in my opinion, the old ones are the best.
