Chambery, La Rue des Portiques

This is a classic arcaded street. Notice that while the buildings are very similar, they have subtle and important differences that hold the eye. Notice also that the street has been kept quite narrow. The effective width of the street is increased by the width of the arcades.

Notice, on the left, the ugly bracket for telephone wires and the wires running up the face of the building.
