... around 3 pm at Monterosso al Mare, the village where we stayed, we took in the sea views before having a regional seafood dinner with our tour group members, which proved to be a gastronomical feast and challenge at the same time. On Sunday, Joanie's cousin from nearby Cicagna met us at our hotel and drove us to beautiful Portofino on the Mediterranean. He toured us through this upscale town and treated us to a ...
