riomaggiore







on the way to the train

the 8th day included:

  • a train ride to vernazza, part of cinque terre, which is on the northwest coast of italy and sits on a cliff overlooking the sea --see sheri's photos here
  • lunch at a cliff-side ristorante (which started out cloudy, then sunny as the bright sun appeared)
  • buying beautiful olive wood cheese boards and bowls
  • walking up and down the cliff-side walkways and streets (quite a work out)
  • a boat ride along the coast to riomaggiore
. . . and ended with a train ride back to lucca where we ate another pasta dinner (i was feeling my pants grow tighter every day. . .)

The colours of these houses and the Sea is a hammer.
