... La Darsena at 8pm. We were just seated and looking at menu when in walked Peter and Edwina so we changed our tables to sit together. Very relaxed atmosphere with beautiful food.

My favorite spot is the rushing river cutting right through the middle of town, with houses perched atop the giant boulders along its banks, with a statue of a saint giving his blessing to those who pass. I try to figure out the best way to take my video clip ...
