Close your eyes, and imagine this: walking the trail, smelling the breeze scented with sage and cactus flowers, gazing down from high above on steep sun-drenched hillsides to the quaint hamlets below - nestled in among the rocky coves... not the usual first impression which comes to mind of Italy - at least my mind. I was thinking pizza, statues, enormous basilicas and fountains... galleries and gardens, and mopeds.
We shall dip our toes in yet another sea,
behold the culture and beauty of another country.
After a day of meandering along the coast of Cinque Terre on the upper west coast of Italy, you will find us relaxing near the sea,
chilled glass of sciacchetra and frutti de mare on the table, watching the sunset over the azure waters of the Ligurian Sea.
