But this one in Stavanger doesn't look like a bicycle one, it's a pedestrian roundabout.

That one doesn't look finished yet, or am I wrong?

Pedestrians are allowed to use our flying roundabout in Eindhoven/Veldhoven, The Netherlands as well

Actually I use maps.google.ch instead of .it, since I use to browse mainly around Northern Italy and Germany. I tried .at but Austria is larger than Switzerland and this causes the map to load with a wider zoom, which I don't prefer.

EDIT: this is the center of my map

There's a saying from Foligno, a town in Umbria (near the centre of Google maps Italy): "Fulignu, lu scentru de lu munnu" (Foligno, the centre of the world).

Yesterday a chlorine explosion happened in a spa near Trieste, injuring 13 people, and a worker lost a leg.

Once in a pack of ham there was written: packed on 31-03, eat by 31-04! That's because they calculated 30 days from production ignoring the lenght of the following month!

I decided to erase it.

BTW, when you wrote your message I was inside the High Speed Train somewhere between Calatayud and Zaragoza .
