Bright large spotless room,very quite, right in centre of town, 10 minute walk to train for visiting the Cinque Terra villages, only thing was no wi-fi in rooms and had to use lobby. Other people can be a distraction.
Good breakfast, helpful staff.

... lots of outdoor restaurants and cafes , shops and real Italian people - not just tourists. Yesterday we did some strenuous hiking between here and the town of Monterosso.

We had a bit of lunch and and an ice-cream (gelato) in the 2nd village, Vernazza, which is centered around a small, picturesque square. At one point the sea comes up to the square under an old stone arch, and that is where we sat and ate ...
... how it goes.
Tomorrow I am off to Milan, and kindly enough staying with a friend of the women who owned the horse place I worked at. Can't beat free, and many of the people that I met there vouched for him so, I'm off to another city. I'm hoping to make Milan, Verona and Venice by the weekend so I can go to Parma and see my cousin on the weekend. Wish me Luck!
Missing you all!
